A team of chemists at the University of California, Riverside have succeeded in “upconverting” photons in the visible and near-infrared regions of the solar spectrum. The innovation is an ingenious way to make solar energy conversion more efficient. The researchers report in Nano Letters about combining inorganic semiconductor nanocrystals with organic molecules. When installing solar […]

A solar panel composed of nano-antennas instead of semiconductors, made by adapting classic metallic antennas to absorb light waves at optical frequencies, has been announced by Tel Aviv University’s Department of Physical Electronics from its innovative new Renewable Energy Center. We have a prior work to consider that harvests the infrared from nearly four years […]
