To synthesize highly pure, crystalline CdS and CdInS 2 nanoparticles with
different morphologies and photoconductivity together with desired band gap.
Especially, the main focus would be to tune the nanoparticles band-gap so as to
exploit the solar energy spectrum.
To disperse effectively the above photoactive inorganic semiconducting
nanoparticles in suitable organic polymers viz. P3HT, MDMO: PPV, P3OT etc.
with different aspect ratio to achieve efficient connectivity/percolation.
To develop hybrid solar cells of size 3 mm x 3 mm using using the above
materials so as to achieve efficiency ranging from 3 to 5%.
