A National University of Singapore research team has set a new record in the power conversion efficiency of solar cells made using perovskite and organic materials. Their latest work demonstrated a power conversion efficiency of 23.6%, approaching that of conventional silicon solar cells. This technological breakthrough paves the way for flexible, light-weight, low cost and […]

The research represents a step toward developing completely transparent solar cells. Kai Wang, assistant research professor of […]

The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has engineered silicon solar cells using a new nanotechnology technique for an efficiency of 18.2% by cutting light reflection of the silicon solar cell surface. The “best” and most efficient solar cells are still built from silicon.  But the costs have just crushed the buying interest even in the […]
