Nanostructures for ultrathin flexible wafer
Researchers in South Korea integrated 2 processes to engrave a nanostructure of little pyramids onto the surface of a silicon wafer. Along with trapping much more light and also enhancing the cell effectiveness, the team declares that its nanostructure improves the mechanical flexibility of the cells. This can potentially enable making use of much thinner silicon wafers than is currently feasible in manufacturing.
