The research represents a step toward developing completely transparent solar cells. Kai Wang, assistant research professor of […]

Inspired by nature, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory researchers have created a novel material capable of capturing light energy. The new material provides a highly efficient artificial light-harvesting system with potential applications in photovoltaics and bioimaging. The research provides a foundation for overcoming the difficult challenges involved in the creation of hierarchical functional organic-inorganic hybrid materials. […]

University of California – Santa Barbara researchers have uncovered a major cause of limitations to efficiency in perovskite solar cells. Various possible defects in the lattice of what are known as hybrid perovskites had previously been considered as the potential cause of such limitations, but it was assumed that the organic molecules (the components responsible […]

The team created special holograms that can be easily inserted into the solar panel package. Each hologram separates the colors of sunlight and directs them to the solar cells within the solar panel. This […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Surrey engineers’ innovative analysis of two-dimensional (2D) materials could boost the development of next-generation solar cells and LEDs. Three-dimensional perovskites have proved themselves remarkably successful materials for LED devices and solar panels in the past decade. One key issue with these materials, however, is their stability, with device performance decreasing quicker than […]
