The researchers' black silicon
also has a flexible backing interspersed with small air channels.
's ability to trap visible light has been known for years, but this is the first case where the material is being leveraged to absorb infrared light for an application like this.
Second, it's an excellent fit with our black silicon
Recently the black silicon
(b-Si) has attracted much attention due to its excellent antireflection (AR) property [1, 2].
, which engineers typically use in solar panels and light sensors, is so cheap and easy to manipulate that creating the nanostructured surface takes just five minutes, Ivanova says.
Elwenspoek, "The black silicon
method: a universal method for determining the parameter setting of a fluorine-based reactive ion etcher in deep silicon trench etching with profile control," Journal of Micromechanics and Microengineering, vol.
To reduce waste from reflection and increase cell efficiency, National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), Boulder, Colo., scientists have invented the Black Silicon
Nanocatalytic Wet-Chemical Etch, a process that turns silicon wafers black so they absorb 98% of solar radiation.
Based on a novel laser implant method first discovered at Harvard and commonly referred to as 'Black Silicon
,' SiOnyx's patented semiconductor process dramatically enhances the performance of light-sensing devices across a range of applications in the consumer, industrial, medical and defense industries.
One ongoing project is investigating black silicon
as a material for infrared sensor technology.
Under floor heating would ideally connect to a district heating system powered by a bio-mass boiler and it would feature the latest generation black silicon
photovoltaic panels to harness renewable energy.
While the traditional solar panels use black silicon
materials to convert solar energy to electricity, this type of solar cell uses photosensitive dye for that purpose.
They temporarily removed a dozen of the black silicon
glazed glass panels from the second floor of Metropolitan Tower to create dramatic visual evidence of the spectacular 57th street corridor views a potential showroom/retail tenant would have from that vantage point.
Electro Abrasives, Buffalo, NY now offers a new class of superfine ceramic and refractory minerals of green and black silicon
carbide and boron carbide.
During its 30-year-history, BLACK ENTERPRISE has told the stories of black Silicon
Valley pioneers such as John W.
On The Basis Of Type: , Porous Silicon as a Versatile Platform for Laser Desorption/Ionization Mass Spectrometry, Silicon Carbide as a Platform for Power Electronics, Black Silicon
as a Platform For Bacterial Detection, Silicon Plasmonics as a Platform for Light Detection.
