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
2013-12-09 16:02:32

DESY X-ray Examination Shows Structural Changes In "Plastics" Solar Cells With the help of DESY’s X-ray light source PETRA III, researchers of Technische Universität München have, for the first time, watched organic solar cells degrade in real time. This work could open new approaches to increasing the stability of this highly promising type of solar cell. The team headed by Prof. Peter Müller-Buschbaum from the Technische Universität München (Technical University of Munich)...

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...

Recyclable, Efficient Solar Cells Created Using Trees
2013-03-27 13:44:42

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online Researchers have developed recyclable, efficient solar cells using natural substrates from plants like trees. Georgia Institute of Technology and Purdue University researchers wrote in the journal Scientific Reports about how the solar cells can be quickly recycled in water at the end of their lifecycle. The team's solar cells are capable of reaching a power conversion efficiency of 2.7 percent. During the recycling process,...


Word of the Day
call-note
  • The call or cry of a bird or other animal to its mate or its young.
'Call-note' is newer than 'bird-call,' which originally referred to 'an instrument for imitating the note of birds' but now also refers to 'the song or cry of a bird.'
