Dye-sensitized solar cell efficiency has been raised to a record 15% with a new fabrication process developed by Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) scientists in Switzerland. The scientists show in a paper published in Nature they have developed a state solid version of the Dye Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSC) that is fabricated by a […]

Rice University researchers are describing a new way to harvest solar energy with a new paper this week in the journal Science. Naomi Halas, Rice’s Stanley C. Moore Professor in Electrical and Computer Engineering, the paper’s lead researcher explains,  “We’re merging the optics of nanoscale antennas with the electronics of semiconductors. There’s no practical way […]
