  • Projects

    1. "Research diffusion barriers for solar contact system", Supervisor: Dr., Prof. KH Nusupov Project duration: 1 January 2015 - 31 December 2017.
    The purpose of the project: Selection, design, deposition and investigation of diffusion barriers, ohmic contacts and the antireflection coating to the front and back side of the solar cell.
    The novelty consists in creating multilayer structures of the contact system and the anti-reflective solar cell covers, in the synthesis of diffusion barrier composite composition based on Ti-N, and other elements between the copper metallization and the silicon substrate containing the additional admixture in certain proportions and configuration obtained using radio-frequency fluctuations and optimum selection of the parameters (barrier thickness, substrate temperature, the ratio of Ar / N2, etc.), leading to the suppression of high-temperature diffusion of copper in the Ti-N and ensure a substantial increase (at 200 ° C) temperature starts diffusion Cu and improving the barrier properties of the films.

    2."Study of the structural and physical properties of solid silicon carbide films SiCx and silicon carbonitride SiCxNy, synthesized ion-beam techniques", supervisor: Prof. Beysenhanov NB Project duration: 1 January 2015 - 31 December 2017.
    The purpose of the project: to synthesize the solid silicon carbide SiCx film and silicon carbonitride SiCxNy ion-beam techniques and establish new laws on the effect of radiation, thermal and plasma treatment of the composition, crystallization processes and the structure of the layers.
    The novelty consists in obtaining data on the effect of short-term plasma (H +) and heat treatments on the structural properties of the films synthesized by ion-beam techniques, to form a passivating and antireflection layers and nanocrystalline alloys nc-SiC: H with built nanosize Si crystals with for use as a window layer of a hybrid a-SiC / nc-Si or nc-SiC / nc-Si thin-film solar cells. It will study the effect of radiation treatment of mono- and nanostructured films of Si and SiC on their radiation resistance, examined the possibility of producing super-hard and durable material for use in the construction of nuclear reactors and the Boers.
