Researchers at Brown University Institute for Molecular and Nanoscale Innovation have come up with a new way of making thin perovskite films for solar cells at room temperature. In just five years of development hybrid perovskite solar cells have attained power conversion efficiencies that took decades to achieve with the top-performing silicon semiconductor materials used […]

Carnegie Institution’s Rebecca R. Hernandez (now at University of California Berkley), Madison K. Hoffacker, and Chris Field found that the amount of energy that could be generated from solar equipment constructed on and around existing infrastructure in California would exceed the state’s demand by up to five times. The team offers that further development of […]

California Institute of Technology scientists inspired by a chemical process found in leaves have developed an electrically conductive film that could help pave the way for devices capable of harnessing sunlight to split water into hydrogen fuel. Nate Lewis, the George L. Argyros Professor and professor of chemistry at Caltech explains the high point, “We […]

Arizona State University researchers are exploring new energy storage technology that could give lithium ion batteries an even longer life cycle. Dan Buttry, professor and chair of ASU’s Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, the research led a team using silicon based ionic liquids and a new formulation. The research, just published in Nature Communications, brings […]

Researchers at the Laboratory of Advanced Materials, University of Alicante’s department of Inorganic Chemistry, have developed a technology that produces artificial methane hydrates. The researchers are showing its possible to prepare methane hydrates in a laboratory by imitating, and even enhancing, natural processes through the use of activated carbon materials as nano-reactors. The may be […]
