Title (EN) METHOD OF FORMING A FLEXIBLE NANOSTRUCTURED MATERIAL FOR PHOTOVOLTAIC PANELS AND APPARATUS FOR CARRYING OUT THE METHOD

Abstract: front page image
(EN)An efficient and low-cost method and apparatus are intended for forming a flexible nanostructured material suitable for use as an active element of a photovoltaic panel. The method consists of evaporating a colloidal solution, which contains nanoparticles of various sizes and/or masses, from a flat surface of a rotating body on which the solution forms a thin and easily vaporizable layer, and simultaneously releasing the nanoparticles from the solution for their free flight through a gaseous medium toward the flexible substrate. As a result, the particles of different sizes and/or types of material are deposited onto the flexible substrate in a predetermined sequence that corresponds to the magnitude of resistance experienced by the nanoparticles during their free flight.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé efficace et économique et un servant à former un matériau nanostructuré flexible pouvant être utilisé comme un élément actif d'un panneau photovoltaïque. Le procédé consiste à évaporer une solution colloïdale, qui contient des nanoparticules de diverses tailles et/ou masses, depuis une surface plate d'un corps tournant sur lequel la solution forme une couche mince et facilement vaporisable, et à libérer simultanément les nanoparticules de la solution pour leur migration libre à travers un milieu gazeux vers le substrat flexible. Par conséquent, les particules de différentes tailles et/ou types de matériau sont déposées sur le substrat flexible dans un ordre prédéfini qui correspond à l'importance de la résistance subie par les nanoparticules pendant leur migration libre.
