Periodic Report - ROD-SOL (All-inorganic nano-rod based thin-film solar cells on glass)

Project ID: 227497
Funded under: FP7-NMP


This is the publishable Report for the ROD-SOL project which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project aimed to explore new innovative concepts for thin film solar cells based on nanorods (NR). NRs were fabricated using different methods whereas silicon-based approaches (silicon nanowires) were favoured because of the material's non-toxicity and abundance.

The report covers a brief overview of the project objectives and then focuses on the additional processing steps that need to be developed for the integration of NR in thin film solar cell devices. It goes on with a detailed mention of the strategic, scientific, technological and policy objectives. The report concludes with the potential socioeconomic impact and the wider societal implications of the project and the main dissemination activities and exploitation of results.
