Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) scientists in a collaboration with University of Groningen (UG) scientists have developed a method to analyze which pairs of materials in next-generation perovskite solar cells will harvest the most energy. In a paper published in Science Advances, physicists Professor Sum Tze Chien from NTU and Professor Maxim Pshenichnikov […]

A Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HBZ) für Materialien und Energie team has demonstrated that hybrid halide perovskites crystallize without an inversion center. Interactions between the organic molecules and adjacent iodine atoms can lead to the formation of ferroelectric domains, which, indirectly, can result in higher solar-cell efficiencies. The formation of these ferroelectric domains cannot occur in purely […]

Rice University materials scientists have found inorganic compounds quench defects in perovskite-based solar cells and expand their tolerance of light, humidity and heat. The scientists believe they’ve overcome a major hurdle keeping perovskite-based solar cells from achieving mainstream use. Through the strategic use of the element indium to replace some of the lead in perovskites, […]

A Tokyo Institute of Technology research team has developed an eco-friendly device that uses solar energy to catalyze an electrochemical oxidation reaction with high efficiency. Green energy sources constitute a hot research field globally because of the current environmental impetus and the pressure to avoid non-renewable energy (fossil fuels). Researchers have been seeking ways to […]

Swedish and Chinese scientists have developed organic solar cells optimized to convert ambient indoor light to electricity. The power they produce is low, but is probably enough to feed the millions of products that the internet of things will bring online. As the internet of things expands, it is expected that we will need to […]
