Things to Know Before Installing Solar on Your Roof

India is one of the few countries which is blessed with abundant solar energy. The country has a tremendous scope for the growth for the solar power. However, factors like lack of proper knowledge about the solar power technology amongst the consumers and penetration of second grade products in the market. Hence, we at Saur […]

This new material removes water pollutants using solar power

Researchers have developed materials capable of absorbing the visible part of the solar spectrum – other materials, such as titanium dioxide, are also able to break down dyes using solar energy, but their efficiency is limited as they only absorb higher energy, ultra-violet light. Researchers at the Swansea University in the United Kingdom have developed […]

This solar paint can turn water vapor into hydrogen

The solar paint contains a newly developed compound that acts like silica gel, which is used in sachets to absorb moisture and keep food, medicines and electronics fresh and dry. But unlike silica gel, the new material, synthetic molybdenum-sulphide, also acts as a semi-conductor and catalyses the splitting of water atoms into hydrogen and oxygen. […]

Chinese Scientists Developing All-Weather Solar Cells

Tang’s team and one led by Yang Peizhi, a professor with Yunnan Normal University, developed a solar cell using a crucial material called long persistent phosphor (LPP), which can store sunlight energy in the day and harvest it in darkness. A photovoltaic revolution is taking place with the emergence of new solar cells. Chinese scientists […]

Scientists are Developing 2-D Layered Hybrid Perovskites for Optoelectronic Performance

At the edges of the perovskite layers, the new research discovered “layer-edge-states,” which are key to both high efficiency of solar cells (>12 percent) and high fluorescence efficiency (a few tens of percent) for LEDs. Scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory and their partners are developing innovative 2D layered hybrid perovskites that allow greater freedom […]

CSIRO makes high-quality graphene with soybeans

Graphene is a carbon material that is one atom thick. Its thin composition and high conductivity means it is used in applications ranging from miniaturised electronics to biomedical devices.   Scientists have used soybeans to make the world’s strongest material grapheme more commercially viable. The team of scientists was led by CSIRO. Graphene is a […]

Researchers develop a solar-powered water purifier

The sun evaporates the water in the solar powered purifier. During this process, salt, bacteria or other unwanted elements are left behind as the liquid moves into a gaseous state. The water vapor then cools and returns to a liquid state, where it is collected in a separate container without the salt or contaminants.  You’ve […]
