A team of University of California, Los Angeles, scientists have a new material design that could make low-cost solar panels far more efficient by greatly enhancing their ability to collect the sun’s energy and release it as electricity. The team found that by assembling the components of the panels to more closely resemble the natural […]

UCLA chemists are developing photovoltaic cells that store the electrical energy. The work is a major improvement for capturing and retaining energy from sunlight, where the stored energy can last dramatically longer than current solar technology allows. The storage can last up to several weeks, instead of the microseconds found in today’s rooftop solar panels. […]
