Jack Flicker and W. Jud Ready Texturing of polycrystalline photovoltaic materials using vertically aligned carbon nanotube arrays Progress in Photovoltaics: Research and Applications 22
In order to demonstrate that three-dimensional carbon nanotube-based photovoltaic devices show an increase in power output over similar planar cells, we have produced cells with texturing through the use of vertically aligned carbon nanotube arrays and cells without this texturing. The textured cells show an increase in the normalized power output compared with similar planar cells when the solar flux is at off-normal angles. The power output shows very good agreement between experimental results and theoretical predictions.
