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 […]

Scientists At MTU Develops Brand-New Way To Synthesize Sodium-Embedded Carbon Nanowalls

A little sodium goes a long way. At least that’s the case in carbon-based energy technology. Specifically, embedding sodium in carbon materials can tremendously improve electrodes. Scientists at Michigan Technological University invented a method to take a material out of theory and make it into a real electrode. They ran tests on the sodium-embedded carbon […]

Solar Cells Made With Tin Could Make Solar Power Cheaper And More Widespread

A research team from University of Warwick lead by Dr. Ross Hatton and Professor Richard Walton explained how solar cells could be produced which are more adaptable and simpler to produce than their current counterparts. Researchers note that solar cells made with tin could lead to a more widespread use of solar power, with potential […]

Researchers sets New Record for Silicon-based Multi-junction Solar Cell with 30.2 Percent Efficiency

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with the Austrian company EV Group (EVG) has developed a silicon-based multi-junction solar cell with two contacts and record efficiency of 30.2 % exceeding theoretical limit of silicon solar cells. To achieve this efficiency, researchers used a “direct wafer bonding” process to transfer a […]

Researchers develop flexible solar panel that can become part of window shades or wallpaper

A research team Led by Shashank Priya has developed flexible solar panels that can become part of window shades or wallpaper capturing light from the sun as well as light from sources inside buildings. The solar modules which are said to be less than half-a-millimeter thick are created through a screen-printing process using low-temperature titanium […]

LUT developed new model shows the functioning of an electricity system that fulfills the targets set by Paris agreement

Lappeenranta University of Technology (LUT) has developed a new model that shows how an electricity system mainly based on solar and wind works in all regions of the world. The new model also shows the functioning of an electricity system that fulfills the targets set by the Paris agreement by using only renewable energy sources.  […]
