Scientists Elevate Quantum Dot Solar Cell World Record

Researchers at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) established a new world efficiency record for quantum dot solar cells, at 13.4 percent. Colloidal quantum dots are electronic materials and because of their astonishingly small size (typically 3-20 nanometers in dimension) they possess fascinating optical properties. Quantum dot solar cells emerged […]

Non-toxic Alternative for Next-Gen Solar Cells

Researchers have demonstrated how a non-toxic alternative to lead could form the basis of next-generation solar cells. The team of researchers, from the University of Cambridge and the United States, have used theoretical and experimental methods to show how bismuth — the so-called “green element” which sits next to lead on the periodic table, could […]
