Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


OBJECTIVE A solar textile for smart clothing was fabricated. Among various type of solar cells, Stainless wire based Dye sensitized solar cell (DSSC) was chosen by considering the optimum physical characteristics (ie: light weight and flexibility) as a clothing material. With the advantage of its wide band-gap, high electronic mobility and reduced recombination, ZnO Nanorod was directly grown on to the flexible stainless steel wire substrate. Several approaches were made to achieve a higher efficiency by considering the practical usage as a power source for the smart clothing.
