A multibarrier nanocoating is proposed, for enhancing the photovoltaic devices durability by integrating more barrier functionalities into a single layer. This nanocoating is deposited on standard solar cells coating organic-inorganic bilayers by applying a Self Assembly of Monolayers (SAM) of alkylsilanes and fluoroalkylsilanes (FAS). The obtained results show that FAS nanocoating significantly improves the liquid (water and oil) and gas (oxygen) barrier properties of the standard coating. This method allows to reduce the number of PV devices coating layers, thus improving transparency, flexibility and reducing costs.

Abstract

A multibarrier nanocoating is proposed, for enhancing the photovoltaic devices durability by integrating more barrier functionalities into a single layer. This nanocoating is deposited on standard solar cells coating organic-inorganic bilayers by applying a Self Assembly of Monolayers (SAM) of alkylsilanes and fluoroalkylsilanes (FAS). The obtained results show that FAS nanocoating significantly improves the liquid (water and oil) and gas (oxygen) barrier properties of the standard coating. This method allows to reduce the number of PV devices coating layers, thus improving transparency, flexibility and reducing costs.
