Latest Dye-sensitized solar cell Stories
Is it a solar cell? Or a rechargeable battery? Actually, the patent-pending device invented at The Ohio State University is both: the world's first solar battery.
At the Laboratory of Photonics and Interfaces at EPFL, where scientists invented dye solar cells that mimic photosynthesis in plants, they have also developed methods for generating fuels such as hydrogen through solar water splitting.
In this new report, NanoMarkets develops a roadmap for next-generation solar materials and analyzes their revenue potential over the next eight years, including a granular forecast of quantities
A new solar material that has the same crystal structure as a mineral first found in the Ural Mountains in 1839 is shooting up the efficiency charts faster than almost anything researchers have seen before—and it is generating optimism that a less expensive way of using sunlight to generate electricity may be in our planet's future.
Photovoltaic energy conversion offers one of the best means for the future of renewable energy in the world.
One of the most promising types of solar cells has a few drawbacks. A scientist at Michigan Technological University may have overcome one of them.
Organic solar cells, a new class of solar cell that mimics the natural process of plant photosynthesis, could revolutionize renewable energy - but currently lack the efficiency to compete with the more costly commercial silicon cells.
Research to be presented at the Conference on Lasers and Electro Optics illuminates 50-year mystery
Forests of carbon nanotubes are an efficient alternative for platinum electrodes in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSC).
