Clear Conductive Films Advance
2012-08-07 15:43:04

Thin, conductive films are useful in displays and solar cells. A new solution-based chemistry developed at Brown University for making indium tin oxide films could allow engineers to employ a much simpler and cheaper manufacturing process. In a touch-screen display or a solar panel, any conductive overlay had better be clear. Engineers employ transparent thin films of indium tin oxide (ITO) for the job, but a high-tech material´s properties are only half its resume. They must also be...

Solar Cells Could Produce Energy-Generating Windows
2012-07-22 06:34:05

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Researchers from a prominent California university have developed a new transparent solar cell that they say could be used to create windows which generate electricity. Writing in the journal ACS Nano, UCLA Materials Science and Engineering Professor Yang Yang and colleagues describe a polymer solar cell (PSC) which is capable of producing energy by absorbing primarily infrared light, not visible light. As such, this allows the...

Carbon nanotubes represent a significant departure from traditional silicon technologies and offer a promising path to solving the challenge of energy efficiency in computer circuits, but they aren't without challenges. Now, engineers at Stanford have found ways around the challenges to produce the first full-wafer digital logic structures based on carbon nanotubes. Energy efficiency is the most significant challenge standing in the way of continued miniaturization of electronic systems,...

Researchers from the Eindhoven University of Technology and the University of Ulm have made the first high-resolution 3D images of the inside of a polymer solar cell. This gives them important new insights in the nanoscale structure of polymer solar cells and its effect on the performance. The findings were published online in Nature Materials on Sunday September 13. The investigations shed new light on the operational principles of polymer solar cells. Cost-effective, flexible and...
