Research into solar cell materials has shown that stibnite synthesis is fast and cheap, and can be easily scaled up, critical for industrial applications.
Michael Grätzel et al. show excellent device stability for perovskite solar cells tested outdoors in the hot, humid climate of Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
Newly published research describes the development and combination of low temperature deposition and processing techniques for perovskite devices.
A research consortium from the UK, Spain, France and Germany is using photonic crystals to improve silicon photovoltaic performance.
British researchers have reported a window electrode based on an ultra-thin bilayer of copper and amorphous tungsten sub-oxide.
A new electrostatic model has been developed, which treats electrons and holes not as point charges or an average electrostatic density, but as delocalized Gaussian spheres.
