Abstract

A discussion covers the synthesis, characterization, photovoltaic, and sensing applications of macroscopic metal or semiconductor nanowire networks with hierarchical porous structure; variables influencing the pore size of the nanowire thin films; photovoltaic devices fabricated by infiltrating the hole-conducting poly(3-hexylthiophene) into the electron-conducting CdSe nanowire thin films with and without the secondary pore channels; characteristics of the heterojunction solar cells; and advantages of a hierarchical pore structure for actual device applications. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 2006 AIChE Annual Meeting (San Francisco, CA 11/12-17/2006).
