Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Using readily available equipment, researchers at from Northwestern University have developed a new type of solar cell based on tin instead of lead perovskite, according to a new report in Nature Photonics. "This is a breakthrough in taking the lead out of a very promising type of solar cell, called a perovskite," said study author Mercouri G. Kanatzidis, an inorganic chemist at Northwestern. "Tin is a very viable material, and we have...

Tom Abate | Stanford Engineering In the quest to make sun power more competitive, researchers are designing ultrathin solar cells that cut material costs. At the same time they're keeping these thin cells efficient by sculpting their surfaces with photovoltaic nanostructures that behave like a molecular hall of mirrors. "We want to make sure light spends more quality time inside a solar cell," said Mark Brongersma, a professor of materials science and engineering at Stanford and...

Secrets Of New Solar Material Unlocked

National Renewable Energy Laboratory A new solar material that has the same crystal structure as a mineral first found in the Ural Mountains in 1839 is shooting up the efficiency charts faster than almost anything researchers have seen before—and it is generating optimism that a less expensive way of using sunlight to generate electricity may be in our planet's future. Researchers at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) are analyzing the new material,...

Organic Solar Cells More Productive With Molecules Face-to-Face
2014-04-08 13:25:29

Tracey Peake, North Carolina State University New research from North Carolina State University and UNC-Chapel Hill reveals that energy is transferred more efficiently inside of complex, three-dimensional organic solar cells when the donor molecules align face-on, rather than edge-on, relative to the acceptor. This finding may aid in the design and manufacture of more efficient and economically viable organic solar cell technology. Organic solar cell efficiency depends upon the ease...
