Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… Rice University engineers have shown the manufacture of high-efficiency solar cells with layers of 2D and 3D perovskites may be simplified by solvents that allow solution deposition of one layer without destroying the other. The work solved a long-standing conundrum in making stable, efficient solar panels out of halide perovskites. The effort took finding […]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology engineers have designed a battery made from inexpensive, abundant materials, that could provide low-cost backup storage for renewable energy sources. Less expensive than lithium-ion battery technology, the new architecture uses aluminum and sulfur as its two electrode materials with a molten salt electrolyte in between. The new battery architecture is described […]

Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) scientists use a water treatment for morphology control in the fabrication of active layer thin films, improving the performance and stability of large-area organic solar cells. Morphology control is essentially about making and placing very small particles in their working position. Albeit somewhat a simplified description, as miniaturization […]

DGIST (Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology in Korea) researchers developed a piezoelectric polymer/ceramic composite fiber with a cross-sectional form that is uniformly controlled to allow the use of energy harvesting technologies that can recycle energy wasted or consumed in everyday life. The results of this study have been published in Nano Energy. Piezoelectric […]

Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory researchers discovered that nickel oxide superconductors contain a phase of quantum matter, known as charge density waves, that’s common in other unconventional superconductors. The new study shows that nickel oxide superconductors, which conduct electricity with no loss at higher temperatures than conventional superconductors do, contain a type of quantum matter […]
