Latest Photoelectrochemical cell Stories
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.
Three Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory researchers were recently named recipients of the Department of Energy's 2014 Hydrogen Production R&D Award for developing a system that uses
Water and some nano-structured iron oxide is all it takes to produce bubbles of solar hydrogen.
Water splitting in photo-electrochemical cells to yield hydrogen is a promising way to sustainable fuels.
The latest episode in the American Chemical Society's (ACS) award-winning "Global Challenges/Chemistry Solutions" podcast series features a new solar cell with high efficiency in converting sunlight into electricity and the durability to last and last.
Scientists from the University of Picardie Jules Verne and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology are reporting development of a new genre of an electrolyte system for solar cells that breaks the double-digit barrier in the efficiency with which the devices convert sunlight into electricity.
Using advanced theoretical computations, a team of Kentucky scientists has derived a means to "tweak" an inexpensive semiconductor to function as photoelectrochemical catalyst.
This discovery will make it possible to improve photoelectrochemical cells.
Researchers are creating a new type of solar cell designed to self-repair like natural photosynthetic systems in plants by using carbon nanotubes and DNA, an approach aimed at increasing service life and reducing cost.
the scientific and commercial future of solar cells could be totally transformed. Professor Marsan has come up with solutions for two problems that, for the last twenty years, have been hampering the development of efficient and affordable solar cells.
