Rice University researchers have integrated high-efficiency perovskite solar cells and electrode catalysts into an efficient, low-cost device that splits water to produce hydrogen fuel. The platform developed by the Brown School of Engineering lab of Rice materials scientist Jun Lou integrates catalytic electrodes and perovskite solar cells that, when triggered by sunlight, produce electricity. The […]

A Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology led international research team has developed a new type of solar cell that can both withstand environmental hazards and is 26.7% efficient in power conversion. Solar cells convert light into energy, but they can be inefficient and vulnerable to the environment, degrading with, ironically, too much light […]

The photosensitizer is a compound that promotes chemical reactions in the presence of light. It has many potential applications for improving the efficiency of modern technologies ranging from electricity-producing solar panels to cell phones. The new chemical photosensitizer compound created by researchers at West Virginia University could change the future for renewable energy. The researchers’ […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology research now can show a new biofuel system that uses lignin found in biomass for the production of hydrogen. The novel technology has been developed for hydrogen production from the process, which involves electrons that are produced during the decomposition of biomass such as waste wood. The […]

Stanford University’s new machine learning method has slashed battery testing times – a key barrier to longer-lasting, faster-charging batteries for electric vehicles – by nearly fifteenfold. Battery performance can make or break the electric vehicle experience, from driving range to charging time to the lifetime of the car. Now, artificial intelligence has made dreams like […]
