The work solved a long-standing conundrum in making stable, efficient solar panels out of halide perovskites. The effort took finding […]

Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) scientists use a water treatment for morphology control in the fabrication of active layer thin films, improving the performance and stability of large-area organic solar cells. Morphology control is essentially about making and placing very small particles in their working position. Albeit somewhat a simplified description, as miniaturization […]

Both MIT and CalTech have press releases out explaining research that could increase wind turbine output by more than 1% up to 3%. The new technology is based on an algorithm that forces individual turbines to coordinate with the others thus boosting the total output. The new approach models the wind flow of the entire […]

An original approach to mass-producing low-cost solar cell foundation blocks could lead to the wide adoption of solar panels made from perovskite ink – a “miracle material” – according to research from the University of Surrey. Dr Ehsan Rezaee, a post-doctoral fellow of the Advanced Technology Institute (ATI) at the University of Surrey, explained his […]

Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) researchers have now produced perovskite/CIS tandem solar cells with an efficiency of nearly 25 percent – the highest value achieved thus far with this technology. In addition the new combination of materials is light and versatile, making it possible to envision the use of these tandem solar cells in vehicles, […]
