    We report the construction of Schottky solar cells based on graphene nanoribbon/multiple silicon nanowires (SiNWs) junctions. Only a few (∼10) SiNWs were involved to miniaturize the solar cell for nanoscale power source applications. It was found that doping level of the SiNWs played an...

    We investigated a variation of frequency-dependent alternating current (AC) surface photovoltages (SPVs) in thermally oxidized, chromium-contaminated, n-type silicon (Si) wafers. As previously reported, immediately after rinsing in Cr-contaminated solution, a Cr(OH)-Si contact causes a...
