NYU Tandon Professor André D. Taylor's research team combines materials and borrows lessons from nature to build a better organic solar cell
Semitransparent organic solar cells in eyeglasses to power microprocessor, example of future solar-powered mobile applications
The first perovskite solar cells could go on the market next year, and some have been reported to capture 20 percent of the sun’s energy
Using a unique ultra-fast spectroscopic technique, EPFL scientists have now been able to track the fate of charged pairs in an advanced type of solar cells currently under intense research
New-generation lateral solar cells promise to be the next big thing for compact devices
The same quality that buffers a raincoat against downpours or a pan against sticky foods can also boost the performance of solar cells, according to a new study from University of Nebraska-Lincoln engineers.
In Science, UMass Amherst researchers tell how they broke the ‘electrode barrier.’
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.
Novel optoelectronic technique reveals limitations to the movement of electrons through organic solar cells, pointing the way toward improved performance.
Researchers have discovered a synthetic, high-performance polymer that behaves differently from other tested materials and could make inexpensive, highly efficient organic solar panels a reality.
