Graphene/Boron Nitride Material System Enables Light Control in Tiny Circuits with Reduced Plasmon Losses

Graphene/Boron Nitride Material System Enables Light Control in Tiny Circuits with Reduced Plasmon Losses

ICFO scientists along with other researchers have proved that boron nitride/graphene material system can hold strongly confined light and suppress Plasmon losses. Since the time graphene was discovered, it has become highly realistic to trap light in small circuits and control its flow electrically. This has been achieved by exploiting plasmons in which light and electrons move together as a single coherent wave. [More]

Novel Nanobowl Optical Concentrator Enhances Power Conversion Efficiency

Geometrical light trapping is a simple and promising strategy to largely improve the optical absorption and efficiency of solar cells. Nonetheless, implementation of geometrical light trapping in organic photovoltaic (OPV) is challenging due to the fact that uniform organic active layer can rarely be achieved on textured substrate.
