Latest solar cells Stories
Working at Berkeley Lab's Advanced Light Source (ALS), a premier source of X-ray and ultraviolet light beams for research, an international team of scientists found that for highly efficient polymer/organic photovoltaic cells, size matters.
Stanford engineers have just discovered a potentially revolutionary solution to the traditionally bulky and expensive photovoltaic cells – peel-and-stick solar panels.
Princeton researchers have found a simple and economic way to nearly triple the efficiency of organic solar cells, the cheap and flexible plastic devices that many scientists believe could be the future of solar power.
For the first time, a silicon-based optical fiber with solar-cell capabilities has been developed that has been shown to be scalable to many meters in length.
A*STAR's Institute of Materials Research and Engineering (IMRE) and Cima NanoTech, a US multinational company, have signed an agreement to jointly work on new sustainable nanomaterials,
How can solar energy be stored so that it can be available any time, day or night, when the sun shining or not?
Scientists from Stanford University report in the journal ACS Nano that they have created the first solar cell made entirely out of carbon.
