Nanowire structured hybrid cell

Nanowire structured hybrid cell for concurrently scavenging solar and mechanical energies

We report a hybrid cell that is intended for simultaneously harvesting solar and mechanical energies. Using aligned ZnO nanowire arrays grown on surfaces of a flat substrate, a dye-sensitized solar cell is integrated with a piezoelectric nanogenerator.

Silicon nanowire (SiNW) solar cells provide potential advantages over planar wafer-based or thin-film cells such as high light absorption and enlarged forbidden energy gap. However, due to a large surface-to-volume ratio, nanowires typically suffer from a high
