Impact of Fabrication Parameters on the Self-cleaning Performance of Hot-embossed Fluoropolymer Films for Photovoltaic Modules

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Photovoltaic (PV) module soiling can be overcome through passive self-cleaning top covers. This work investigates hot-embossing microtextured fluorinated ethylene propylene films to obtain superhydrophobic surfaces exhibiting the dual functionality of self-cleaning and anti-reflection properties.
