Iron-based solar cells on track to becoming more efficient

An international study led from Lund University in Sweden shows that 30 per cent of the energy in a certain type of light-absorbing iron molecule disappears in a previously unknown manner. By closing this loophole, the researchers hope to contribute… Read moreIron-based solar cells on track to becoming more efficient

New material points toward highly efficient solar cells

A new type of material for next-generation solar cells eliminates the need to use lead, which has been a major roadblock for this technology. Solar cells, incorporating the mineral perovskite, have been the focus of attention since the material was… Read moreNew material points toward highly efficient solar cells

Perovskite solar cells: Possible aspects of high efficiency uncovered

Solar cells based on perovskites have reached enormously high efficiencies within a few years, only. Those containing hybrid halide perovskite, i.e. materials containing inorganic and organic components, achieve particularly high efficiencies, but lack long-term stability, yet. Even though inorganic perovskite… Read morePerovskite solar cells: Possible aspects of high efficiency uncovered
