Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) have reported a breakthrough in developing a next-generation thermochromic window that not only reduces the need for air conditioning but simultaneously generates electricity. Heat generated by sunlight shining through windows is the single largest contributor to the need for air conditioning and cooling […]

Link√∂ping University researchers have developed a perovskite light-emitting diode (LED) with both high efficiency and long operational stability. Working with colleagues in Great Britain, China and the Czech Republic developing the perovskite light-emitting diode (LED) the team’s results have been published in Nature Communications. Professor Feng Gao, and head of research at the Division of […]

One useful property that so far has not been observed in perovskites is called “carrier multiplication”, an effect that makes materials much more efficient in converting light into electricity. Perovskites form a group of crystals that have many promising properties for applications in nano-technology. New research performed in collaboration between the University of Amsterdam (UA) […]

Princeton University researchers have built another path forward for LED technologies. By refining the manufacturing of light sources made with crystalline substances known as perovskites, a more efficient and potentially lower-cost alternative to materials used in today’s LEDs can be made. Just as the complexity and bulkiness of CFLs distorted the engineering and lighting market, […]

University of New South Wales engineers in Australia have smashed the new perovskite compound’s world efficiency record. Perovskites are the hottest new material in solar cell design because flexible, cheap to produce and simple to make. Anita Ho-Baillie, a Senior Research Fellow at the Australian Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics (ACAP) announced at the Asia-Pacific Solar […]
