  • Patent number: 8497199
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for fabricating a thin film formed with a uniform single-size monolayer of spherical AZO nanoparticles. Because of its own advantages in cost and transparency, Al-doped ZnO (AZO) transparent conductive film is becoming the most commonly used transparent conducting oxide (TCO) replacement for solar cells. In this invention, a colloidal chemical means is adopted for enabling a chemical reaction between metal salts, water, and polyhydric alcohols at a room-temperature environment, and thereby, a process for fabricating spherical AZO nanoparticles in a diameter ranged between 100 nm to 400 nm according to different parameter configurations can be achieved while controlling the actual Al/Zn ratio to be ranged between 0.1% to 3%. In addition, a dip coating means is adopted for densely distributing the spherical AZO nanoparticles on a substrate into a monolayer close-packed structure.

  • Publication number: 20110308594
    Abstract: The present invention provides a solar cell, which has an improved light-trapping structure, wherein the light trapping structure is a single layer of thin film made of a plurality of zinc oxide microballs whose diameter is ranged between 300 nm and 650 nm. In a preferred embodiment, the light trapping layer, being configured with a plurality of microballs made of zinc oxide, is disposed at a position between the front surface of a photovoltaic conversion layer and a front electrode of the solar cell. Since the light-trapping structure is formed directly from the ZnO transparent conductive layer of the solar cell, the types of materials used for constructing the solar cell are reduced.

  • Publication number: 20080124895
    Abstract: The invention is directed to a wafer bonding method for bonding a first wafer with a second wafer, wherein the first wafer has a first top surface and the second wafer has a second top surface formed thereon and the first wafer bonds with the second wafer in a manner that the first top surface of the first wafer is opposite the second top surface of the second wafer. The wafer bonding method comprises steps of adding a hydroxyl-ion-containing solution between the first top surface and the second top surface and then applying an external pressure on the first wafer and the second wafer. An annealing process is performed.
