Main scientific achievements The main directions of the scientific research of T.D. Dzhafarov are as follows: a) Diffusion processes in semiconductors and semiconductor devices, b) Nanostructured silicon-based photovoltaic solar cells and hydrogen fuel cells. Series of investigations carried out by T.D. Dzhafarov and related with influence of radiation and illumination on electro-transport and impurity diffusion, permitted to determinate diffusion parameters, migration mechanisms of impurities and point defects. These results were applied while in creation of a number of semiconductor devices with stable characteristics (hetero-lasers, solar sells, light-emitting diodes, infrared detectors, tunnel diodes etc.). Effective photovoltaic silicon solar cells with nano-porous silicon layers as antireflection coating have been developed. The production technology of new type of hydrogen fuel cells on basis of nano-structured porous silicon, that directly converts at room temperature chemical energy of hydrogen to electric energy at room temperature have been developed.
