New Applied Physical Science Study Results from Banaras Hindu University Described

January 28, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Physics Week -- Research findings on Applied Physical Science are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting out of Uttar Pradesh, India, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "We report formation of polycarbazole (PCz)-graphene nanocomposite over indium tin oxide (ITO) coated glass substrate using electrochemical technique for fabrication of high performance Schottky diodes. The synthesized nanocomposite is characterized before fabrication of devices for confirmation of uniform distribution of graphene nanosheets in the polymer matrix."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Banaras Hindu University, "Pure PCz and PCz-graphene nanocomposites based Schottky diodes are fabricated of configuration Al/PCz/ITO and Al/PCz-graphene nanocomposite/ITO, respectively. The current density-voltage (J-V) characteristics and diode performance parameters (such as the ideality factor, barrier height, and reverse saturation current density) are compared under ambient condition. Al/PCz-graphene nanocomposite/ITO device exhibits better ideality factor in comparison to the device formed using pure PCz."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "It is also observed that the Al/PCz-graphene nanocomposite/ITO device shows large forward current density and low turn on voltage in comparison to Al/PCz/ITO device."
