New Material For Solar Panels Could Make Them Cheaper And More Efficient
2013-12-12 08:01:27

Argonne National Laboratory A unique solar panel design made with a new ceramic material points the way to potentially providing sustainable power cheaper, more efficiently, and requiring less manufacturing time. It also reaches a four-decade-old goal of discovering a bulk photovoltaic material that can harness energy from visible and infrared light, not just ultraviolet light. Scaling up this new design from its tablet-size prototype to a full-size solar panel would be a large step...

Researchers Demonstrate New Paradigm For Solar Cell Construction
2013-11-12 13:43:21

University of Pennsylvania For solar panels, wringing every drop of energy from as many photons as possible is imperative. This goal has sent chemistry, materials science and electronic engineering researchers on a quest to boost the energy-absorption efficiency of photovoltaic devices, but existing techniques are now running up against limits set by the laws of physics. Now, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania and Drexel University have experimentally demonstrated a new...

Recipe For High-efficiency Solar Cells
2013-11-06 09:44:43

Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (EMPA) For many years scientists and engineers have been trying to provide low-cost solar energy by developing a cheap solar cell that is both highly efficient and at the same time simple to build, enabling it to be mass produced. Now, the team led by Empa researcher Ayodhya N. Tiwari has made a major leap forward: the researchers are presenting a new manufacturing technique for CIGS solar cells, in which tiny quantities of...
