‘Black Silicon’ Helps Reduce Solar Panel Cost

The black silicon technology can only reduce the costs of solar components till a certain limit. Taking a step towards cost considerations of solar modules, researchers at Aalto University have found a way to reduce production costs of solar cells by more than 10 percent by using ‘black silicon’. Moreover, creating Nano-textures on silicon with […]

New Lead-Free Perovskite Material for Solar Cells

A class of materials called perovskites has emerged as a promising alternative to silicon for making inexpensive and efficient solar cells. But for all their promise, perovskites are not without their downsides. Most contain lead, which is highly toxic, and include organic materials that are not particularly stable when exposed to the environment. Now a […]

Ingot Carving the Future

Silicon is the most abundant solid element on earth; it makes up more than 25% of the earth’s crust. However, it rarely occurs in elemental form, virtually all of it is existing as compounds. Solar cells are made from silicon boules, polycrystalline structures that have the atomic structure of a single crystal. The most commonly […]
