  • Annealing effect of hybrid solar cells based on poly (3-hexylthiophene) and zinc-oxide nanostructures 

    Motaung, David; Malgas, Gerald; Ray, Suprakas S.; Arendse, Christopher (Elsevier, 2013)
    The structural growth and optical and photovoltaic properties of the organic–inorganic hybrid structures of zinc oxide (ZnO)-nanorods/poly-3-hexylthiophene (P3HT) and two variations of organic polymer blends of ZnO/ ...
  • Comparative study: the effect of annealing conditions on the properties of P3HT:PCBM blends 

    Motaung, David E.; Malgas, Gerald; Nkosi, Steven S.; Mhlongo, Gugu H.; Mwakikunga, Bonex W.; Malwela, Thomas; Arendse, Christopher; Muller, Theophillus F. G.; Cummings, Franscious R. (Springer Verlag, 2013)
    This paper presents a detailed study on the role of various annealing treatments on organic poly(3-hexylthiophene) and [6]-phenyl-C61-butyric acid methyl ester blends under different experimental conditions. A combination ...
  • Self-catalytic growth of tin oxide nanowires by chemical vapor deposition process 

    Thabethe, Bongani; Malgas, Gerald; Motaung, David; Malwela, Thomas; Arendse, Christopher (Hindawi, 2013)
    We report on the synthesis of tin oxide (SnO2) nanowires by a chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process. Commercially bought SnO nanopowders were vaporized at 1050∘C for 30 minutes with argon gas continuously passing through ...
