WP4 – Photonic Nanostructures

WP4 is dedicated to the fabrication and characterization of the photonic nanostructures that will be exploited in WP4 for the fabrication of the thin-film QD solar cell. The main objective is

  • Development of nanopatterned photonic structures and related surface passivation process to be exploited in the fabrication of the fully nanostructured ELO thin-film cell in WP5
  • Preliminary development of double-sided grating cell on small area samples
