Stanford Scientists Create New Material for Thin, Lightweight Solar Panels

A race is on in solar engineering to create almost impossibly-thin, flexible solar panels. Engineers imagine them used in mobile applications, from self-powered wearable devices and sensors to lightweight aircraft and electric vehicles. Against that backdrop, researchers at Stanford University have achieved record efficiencies in a promising group of photovoltaic materials, writes Andrew Myers in […]

Kesterite Offers A Pathway To Greener Solar Cells

Kesterite is a natural mineral with many important material properties, including a band gap that can be used as a light absorber material for next generation thin-film solar cells. Unlike their perovskite-based competitor technologies, Kesterite solar cells are natural and non-toxic, making them them a truly eco-friendly alternative to the fully or partially inorganic materials, silicon and […]

Arriving Soon: Solar Panels that Generate Power at Night

Can solar panels generate energy even when the sun isn’t around? In a major breakthrough, researchers at the University of California have designed a unique night solar panel (NSP) that can produce 50 W under ideal conditions at night, one-fourth of what traditional solar panel produce during the day. In their paper entitled ‘Nighttime Photovoltaic […]
