The Impact of Carbon Nanotubes on Solar Energy Conversion
Volume 3, Issue 4

Emmanuel Kymakis, Technical Educational Institute, Crete, Greece

Perhaps no other application of nanotechnology has intrigued investors more than photovoltaics. In this paper, Dr. Emmanuel Kymakis discusses the integration of carbon nanotubes (“CNTs”) in organic photovoltaic devices. Part I provides a background on photovoltaic and CNT technologies. Part II goes on to examine the use of CNTs as electron acceptor materials and transparent electrodes in donor- acceptor photovoltaic devices. Finally, Part III considers modern manufacturing techniques for the development of cheap solar cells, focusing on current research efforts and commercialization issues.
