Researchers from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory have created soft polymer materials capable of thermoelectric energy generation.
The Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) has nudged up the performance bar for thin-film solar cells yet another notch.
A NUS team has reported a highly efficient ORR electrocatalyst derived from an iron-based metal–organic framework (MOF).

A new solar cell is described that relies on a thin layer of clean CdS in which a high-field domain extracts holes from p-type emitters without having pn-junctions involved. This design is highly advantageous for increasing the efficiency of the solar cell significantly, by avoiding junction leakage and by increasing the open circuit voltage to its theoretical value approaching the band gap at T = 0 K.
Researchers from Singapore have grown nanoporous nickel sulfide on nickel foam to generate promising electrodes for supercapacitors.
