Ruhr-University Bochum researchers are reporting on a new class of catalysts that is theoretically suitable for universal use. Numerous chemical reactions relevant for the energy revolution are highly complex and result in considerable energy losses. This is the reason why energy conversion and storage systems or fuel cells are not yet widely used in commercial […]

A team of researchers from North Carolina State University and the U.K. has found that the low rate of energy conversion in all-polymer photovoltaic solar-cell technology is caused by the structure of the solar cells themselves. Dr. Harald Ade, professor of physics at NCSU explains, “Solar cells have to be simultaneously thick enough to absorb […]
