National University of Singapore scientists have developed a novel triple-junction perovskite/Si tandem solar cell that can achieve a certified world-record power conversion efficiency of 27.1 percent across a solar energy absorption area of 1 sq cm, representing the best-performing triple-junction perovskite/Si tandem solar cell thus far. To achieve this, the team engineered a new cyanate-integrated […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… A University of Rochester research team has proposed a novel, physics-based approach, using a substrate of either a layer of metal or alternating layers of metal and dielectric material for perovskite based solar cells. Researchers typically synthesize perovskites in a wet lab, and then apply the material as a film on a glass substrate […]

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 […]

Linköping 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) […]
