GLEN ALLEN, Va., March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- NanoMarkets, a leading industry analyst firm based here, today announced the release of its newest report, "Organic Photovoltaic Materials Markets: 2009 - 2016". The report projects that sales of materials for both "pure" organic solar cells (OPV) and hybrid organic/inorganic dye-sensitized solar cells (DSC), are expected to reach almost $600 million ($US) by 2016. The report goes on to note that the willingness of materials firms to meet the small...

U.S. scientists say they have developed a titanium nanostructure that provides an expanded surface area and greater efficiency in the transport of electrons. Boston College researchers said their achievement will help in developing solar panels thick enough to absorb sunlight, yet thin enough to collect and transport electrons with minimal energy loss. Assistant Professor Dunwei Wang and his team said they found incorporating two titanium-based semiconductors into a nanoscale structure...

By Shelley, Suzanne NANOTECHNOLOGY A greener, less-expensive method to produce hydrogen fuel may eventually be possible using water with the help of solar energy and nanotube diodes that use the entire spectrum of the sun's energy, according to Penn State scientists. "Other researchers have developed ways to produce hydrogen with mind-boggling efficiency, but their approaches have very high costs," says Craig A. Grimes, professor of electrical engineering. "We are working toward something...

ERG Renew and Permasteelisa have announced that they will enter into the next-generation photovoltaic panels sector through their participation in a technological research and development project for the production of non-silicon based solar panels. The objective is to develop over the next four years so-called organic photovoltaic cells and to start-up an industrial production line of DSSC (Dye Sensitized Solar Cells) panels. This technology utilizes light-sensitive organic pigments and...

Cristal Global (Cristal) announced today that it will raise titanium dioxide (TiO2) product prices, beginning September 1st, to offset "dramatic" raw material, energy and feedstock cost escalation. Prior announcements have described the need for price advances due to unprecedented cost increases of raw materials, freight, sulfur, natural gas, and energy, combined with the strength of the Real. As a consequence, Cristal Global will increase the prices of all Tiona(R) pigments sold in...
