Latest Organic photovoltaics Stories
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.
Detailed studies of one of the best-performing organic photovoltaic materials reveal an unusual bilayer lamellar structure that may help explain the material's superior performance at converting sunlight to electricity and guide the synthesis of new materials with even better properties.
Future prospects for superior new organic electronic devices are brighter now thanks to a new study by researchers with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab).
In the effort to convert sunlight into electricity, photovoltaic solar cells that use conductive organic polymers for light absorption and conversion have shown great potential.
New solar cells could increase the maximum efficiency of solar panels by over 25%, according to scientists from the University of Cambridge.
