University of Basel researchers continue to improve the performance dye sensitized solar cells with sensitizers using iron – a commonly available and environmentally friendly metal. Solar energy plays an important role in the fight against climate change as a substitute for fossil fuels. Dye-sensitized solar cells promise to be a low-cost supplement to the photovoltaic […]

Dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC), the ones in mind when printed solar cells or ‘roll to roll’ cell production is discussed, have an upgrade in the works at the University of Minnesota.  Bin Liu and Eray S. Aydil have engineered alternating layers of nanometer and micrometer particles that send light ricocheting through layers of microscopic spheres, […]
