Open Image…Save ImageOpen Image (using #TmpD/ia)… University of Surrey engineers’ innovative analysis of two-dimensional (2D) materials could boost the development of next-generation solar cells and LEDs. Three-dimensional perovskites have proved themselves remarkably successful materials for LED devices and solar panels in the past decade. One key issue with these materials, however, is their stability, with device performance decreasing quicker than […]

Los Alamos National Laboratory researchers have developed new quantum dot solar cells that match the efficiency of existing quantum-dot based devices, but without lead or other toxic elements relied on by most solar cells of this type. Victor Klimov, a physicist specializing in semiconductor nanocrystals at Los Alamos and lead author of the report featured […]

A Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute team of engineers, material scientists, and physicists have demonstrated how a new material – a lead-free chalcogenide perovskite – that hadn’t previously been considered for use in solar cells could provide a safer and more effective option than others that are commonly considered. A widespread transition to solar energy will depend […]

Kanazawa University researchers have documented a new method for controlling the orientation of conducting molecules in organic solar cells that results in the enhanced light adsorption and performance of the cells. Solar cells are an alternate source of energy. A subtype of these, organic solar cells, make use of organic polymers inside the cell. Using […]

Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) Graduate University researchers have improved perovskite-based technology in the entire energy cycle. The progress ranges from solar cells harnessing power to LED diodes to light the screens of future electronic devices and other lighting applications. Perovskite is a naturally occurring mineral, but the perovskite used in today’s technology […]
