  • In situ indium–induced crystallisation of low temperature nano–poly silicon (LTNPS) thin film on ITO glass substrate

    For the first time, the low temperature nano–poly silicon (LTNPS) thin films were formed on indium tin oxide (ITO) glass with a temperature of ∼200ºC using the in situ indium–induced crystallisation of the plasma enhanced CVD (PECVD) deposited a–Si. Compared with the conventional method for transfer of the PECVD formed amorphous structure to the nano–poly one, the technology features a low ...

  • A technical note on performance testing of a solar box cooker provided with sensible storage material on the surface of absorbing plate

    A box type solar cooker having a double glass cover and a plane mirror reflector has been tested for its thermal performance. In the present study, performance of solar box cooker has been compared by using two different sensible heat storage materials (sand and granular carbon). By using these materials as a mixture and spread it over absorber tray in the form of thin layer and fully packed with ...
