Abstract

Smooth and aligned single walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) thin films with improved optoelectronic performance are fabricated using a superacid slide casting method. Deposition of as made SWNT thin film on silicon (Si) together with post treatments result in SWNT/Si hybrid solar cells with unprecedented high fill factor of 73.8%, low ideality factor of 1.08 as well as overall dry cell power conversion efficiency of 11.5%.
