Hot Carrier Dynamics in Nanostructures for Hot Carrier Solar Cells

Back to search results

The project will investigate the interactions between electrons and phonons in high quality semiconductor nanostructures, with application the hot carrier solar cell. Growth of epitaxial III-V quantum well nanostructures will be carried out using the III-arsenides molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) tool in ANFF (LIEF 2011), this will be augmented by growth of epitaxial III-nitrides with external collaborators. Luminescent properties will be measured on PL equipment in Chemistry. (LIEF 2008.) Carrier dynamics will be measured by transient absorption spectroscopy in SPREE. (Being established LIEF 2015.) Interpretation of carrier cooling mechanisms and application to hot carrier solar cells.
