  • Patent number: 9496559
    Abstract: A nanostructured anode of solid oxide fuel cell with high stability and high efficiency and a method for manufacturing the same are revealed. This anode comprising a porous permeable metal substrate, a diffusion barrier layer and a nano-composite film is formed by atmospheric plasma spray. The nano-composite film includes a plurality of metal nanoparticles, a plurality of metal oxide nanoparticles, and a plurality of gas pores that are connected to form nano gas channels. The metal nanoparticles are connected to form a 3-dimensional network that conducts electrons, while the metal oxide nanoparticles are connected to form a 3-dimensional network that conducts oxygen ions. The network formed by metal oxide nanoparticles has certain strength to separate metal nanoparticles and prevent aggregation or agglomeration of the metal nanoparticles. Thus this anode can be applied to a solid oxide fuel cell operating in the intermediate temperatures (600˜800° C.) with high stability and high efficiency.

  • Patent number: 9245758
    Abstract: A method for fabricating a silicon-doped or boron-doped aluminum electrode is revealed. Aluminum target or aluminum paste prepared by selectively doped with silicon and/or boron is arranged at a silicon wafer with a passivation layer by physical deposition or screen printing. Then the doped aluminum layer is melted in linear or dot pattern to pass through the passivation layer and contact with the silicon wafer. Thus contact resistance between an aluminum back electrode and the silicon wafer of crystalline silicon solar cells is reduced and acceptor concentration on a surface layer of the silicon wafer is increased. Therefore the process speed is faster and the energy conversion efficiency of the solar cell is improved.

  • Publication number: 20150194554
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a structure of concentrating solar cell module with reduced height, which includes multiple partitions and reflection mirrors. The solar cell receiver is attach to a surface of the partition and rotated by 90 degrees. After the reflection leans against a surface of another partition, the light concentrated by the concentrating lens can be redirected from vertical incidence to horizontal incidence. Then the redirected light is focused at the 90-degree rotated solar cell receiver for performing energy conversion. This structure avoids the limitation of the concentrating solar cell module by the focal distance of the concentrating lens. Thereby, the height of the module is reduced substantially; the volume of the module becomes thinner and the weight thereof becomes lighter and thus facilitating installation and transportation.

  • Publication number: 20150187979
    Abstract: A heterojunction solar cell with an epitaxial silicon thin film and a method for preparing the same are revealed. Low-cost upgraded metallurgical grade silicon (UMG-Si) wafers have been used as the substrates to manufacture solar cells so as to reduce the amount of high-purity silicon materials used. First an epitaxial silicon thin film is disposed over a UMG-Si wafer. Then other layers such as an amorphous silicon thin film, a transparent conductive film, etc. are arranged to form a solar cell having heterojunction with an intrinsic thin-layer (HIT) structure. Due to reduce in using high-purity silicon materials, the manufacturing cost of the heterojunction solar cell with an epitaxial silicon thin film is significantly decreased.

  • Publication number: 20150118122
    Abstract: A membrane reactor with divergent-flow channel includes a reaction pipeline, a membrane and a purge (sweep) pipeline sequentially arranged from inside to outside or from outside to inside. The reaction pipeline has a cross-sectional area increment from the front (upstream) end to the rear (downstream) end, so that the flow velocity of a reactant gas is decreased from the upstream end to the downstream end to extend the residence time of the reactant gas and improve the reaction rate of the reactant gas. The sweep pipeline has a cross-sectional area decrement from the upstream end to the downstream end, so that the flow velocity of a purging (sweeping) gas is increased from the upstream end to the downstream end to accelerate the reactant gas, and a product gas generated from the reaction passes through the membrane and enters the sweep pipeline to improve the reaction efficiency.
