Double-nanotextured black diamond films with different geometries were fabricated by double-step femtosecond laser treatments at different split ratios of accumulated laser fluence.

Abstract

Double-nanotextured black diamond films with different geometries were fabricated by double-step femtosecond laser treatments at different split ratios of accumulated laser fluence. A “2D-like” pseudo-periodic nanostructure was obtained for the first time when the split ratio was slightly unbalanced in favour of the first step of the treatment, as inferred by scanning electron microscopy. Raman analysis showed that a residual biaxial stress, composed by a superposition of a tensile and a compressive component, is always present after the laser writing process, and that the two components tend to balance each other in the 2D pseudo-periodic case. Spectrophotometric measurements in the 200–2000 nm wavelength range returned outstanding solar absorptance values for all the fabricated films (reaching the unprecedented value of 99.1% in the “2D-like” structure), launching double-nanotextured black diamond as a possible alternative to black silicon as absorbing layer for high-efficiency solar cells. © 2018 Elsevier Ltd
