Deep-UV probing method detects electron transfer in photovoltaics

Sensitized solar cells consisting of a molecular or solid-state sensitizer that serves to collect light and inject an electron into a substrate that favors their migration are among the most studied photovoltaic systems at present. Despite its importance in determining the potential of a photovoltaic device, current methods for monitoring the interfacial electron transfer remain […]

Researchers have designed a device that is effective and offer low-cost solution for storing solar energy

Solar energy can be stored by converting it into hydrogen. But current methods are too expensive and don’t last long. Researchers at EPFL and CSEM have designed a device using commercially available solar cells and none of the usual rare metals that outperforms in stability, efficiency and cost. One of the solutions to store solar […]
