Workshop on High throughput metrology for nanowire energy harvesting devices
9 September 2021
20th International Metrology Congress CIM2021, Lyon, France
Energy harvesting from renewable sources (solar, heat and movement) is a prominent solution to create small amounts of electrical energy in areas of difficult access, and energy harvesting devices have much potential to address our world energy problems.
Nanowire (NW) based energy harvesting systems have achieved encouraging progress, but due to nanometre dimensions of the wires and large size up to m^2 of the devices, they also bring challenges for testing and characterisation.
Average properties of energy harvesting devices can be measured, but a quantitative link and correlation between the performance of single NWs and that of the overall device is lacking.
This project aims to develop reliable and high throughput metrology for the quality control of NW energy harvesting systems.
