AIP News Staff Researchers at University of Tsukuba and National Institute for Materials Science use charge formation efficiency to screen materials for future devices Organic photovoltaic cells -- a type of solar cell that uses polymeric materials to capture sunlight -- show tremendous promise as energy conversion devices, thanks to key attributes such as flexibility and low-cost production. But one giant hurdle holding back organic photovoltaic technologies have been the...

Flexible Glass Used To Extend Life Of Organic Solar Modules
2014-07-09 03:06:59

Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft Organic solar modules have advantages over silicon solar cells. However, one critical problem is their shorter operating life. Researchers are working on a promising solution: they are using flexible glass as a carrier substrate that better protects the components. This approach is already being employed in electronic devices to some extent today: organic photovoltaics (OPVs) are embedded in film. These OPVs are a promising alternative to silicon-based solar...

New Light Shed On Mystery Mechanism That Allows Positive And Negative Charges To Be Separated Efficiently
2013-12-13 10:17:11

University of Cambridge By using an ultrafast camera, scientists say they have observed the very first instants following the absorption of light into artificial yet organic nanostructures and found that charges not only formed rapidly but also separated very quickly over long distances - phenomena that occur due to the wavelike nature of electrons which are governed by fundamental laws of quantum mechanics. This result surprised scientists as such phenomena were believed to be limited...

Solar Cell Degradation Seen Directly For The First Time

Solar Power Through Painted On Organic Photovoltaics
2013-05-14 05:58:22

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Researchers at the University at Buffalo are developing a technique that could allow for solar panels to be painted on some day. The team wrote in the journal Advanced Materials they are helping to develop a new generation of photovoltaic cells that produce more power and cost less to manufacture than today's solar panels. These devices are processed in liquid form and can be applied to a variety of surfaces. “Compared with...
