Fiber Optic Amplifier

PbS/CdS quantum dots synthesized in organic solvents are hydrophobic. In order to disperse the hydrophobic quantum dots into polar solvents, the quantum dots were modified with a specially formulated amphiphilic copolymer. The ultrasonically treated mixture was coated onto the tapered region of the fiber coupler to obtain the QD-doped film. The fiber amplifier was fabricated by dip-coating a silica sol doped with PbS/CdS quantum dots onto a fused tapered fiber coupler. The tapered dual fiber couplers are manufactured using standard SMF using flame fusion cone technology and can be easily coupled to other fiber optic devices. Using this dual fiber structure, both signal and pumping can be injected into the active region. Due to the shape of the tapered fiber, the swift wave can penetrate to the outer surface. The pump will excite the doped quantum dots through the swift wave. At the same time, the signal interacts with the excited quantum dots through the swift wave and is then amplified. For the swift wave excitation structure, the gain region must satisfy the total internal reflection condition.

Co-Sensitized Solar Cells

A novel TiO2 photoanode with graded hole distribution has been used for PbS/CdS QDSCs, which consists of a transparent layer with small holes and a light scattering layer derived from large nano-embossed hollow spheres. Meanwhile, screen-printable Cu2S/carbon composite counter electrodes were used to prepare PbS/CdS QDSCs. such photoanodes have large surface areas and graded pore distributions, which are well suited for quantum dot deposition and penetration of polysulfide electrolytes. Based on this photoanode, unprecedented IPCE and JSC were obtained, and conversion efficiencies of up to 3.82% were achieved.
