    The CIGAS materials were prepared by the solvothermal technique. XRD, SEM, TEM, XPS and UV-Vis-NIR measurements revealed that the microstructure and optical absorption properties of the powders were significantly affected by the Al incorporation. In addition, the Al incorporation could effectively substitute In and Ga atoms, by which to decrease the cost of solar cells and improve the performance of CIGS devices.

  2. Growth of the complex borates YxRySc2+z(BO3)4 (R = Nd, Pr, x + y + z = 2) with huntite structure

    Bulk crystals of nonlinear optical materials NdYSB and PrYSB without striation defects were grown using novel LiBO2–LiF flux. It was confirmed that introduction of Y atoms to the Nd(Pr)Sc3(BO3)4 stabilizes R32 huntite-type structure, like it was shown for YLSB crystals. All that together with a presence of active Nd3+ and Pr3+ rates the studied crystals as promising self frequency doubling materials.

  3. Three-phase hydration of magnesium oxide using hydration agents

    It clearly showed that, under three-phase reaction system, there existed some crystallite on the surface of the large particles. And this phenomenon tended to be more obvious when MgO hydration in Mg(CH3COO)2 and CH3COOH solutions, which implied that the peel-off phenomenon is more obvious in the present of CH3COO.

  4. Scintillation properties of crystals based on ternary bromides of calcium and alkali metals activated with europium

    N. V. Rebrova, A. Yu. Grippa, A. S. Pushak, T. E. Gorbacheva, V. Yu. Pedash, V. A. Tarasov and V. L. Cherginets

    Single crystals of new scintillating materials ACaBr3:Eu2+ (A = K, Rb) have been grown. RbCaBr3:Eu2+ is a bright scintillator which luminosity exceeds considerably that of Cs-based analogs.

  5. Cross-sectional scanning capacitance microscopy characterization of GaAs based solar cell structures

    Adam Szyszka, Wojciech Dawidowski, Andrzej Stafiniak, Joanna Prażmowska, Beata Ściana and Marek Tłaczała

    Version of Record online: 26 MAY 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/crat.201700019

    For the first time, Scanning Capacitance Microscopy was applied for cross-sectional investigation of individual components of III-V tandem solar cell (InGaAs tunnel junction, GaAs top subcell and GaAsN bottom subcell). Possible influence of measurement condition on estimation of electrical junction position was observed.
