New research has investigated how the internal structure of organic solar cells impacts their performance.
Researchers show that there is a way to blow past Shockley-Queisser efficiency limit — once seen as an ultimate limit.
£700,000 grant will support research to drive down energy costs in an environmentally friendly way.
Nanowire solar cells created at EPFL could absorb 12 times as much light as the current standard.
Efficient solar cells can be fabricated using natural substrates derived from plants such as trees.
A new technique developed by U of T Engineering Professor Ted Sargent and his research group could lead to significantly more efficient solar cells.
A new method of harvesting solar energy is emerging, which makes use of gold nanorods instead of traditional semiconductor technology.
