The Yang Yang Laboratory (UCLA) again made the headlines with a breakthrough research, this time in the form of a novel approach to produce low cost & high efficiency Perovskite solar cells.
Salleo and McGehee groups from Stanford University Department of Materials Science and Engineering cooperated with multiple teams abroad for their latest project regarding how the electrons & holes split in organic solar cells.
Even though it’s relative new, if you have read the Atwater Research Group review in our website, you must be familiar with plasmonics. Prof. Harry Atwater is the person who gave plasmonics its name.
A relatively new fact about polymer solar cells (aka plastic solar cells) is that the cells show improved performance when the material is less orderly.
The Javey Research Group demonstrates their work to apply Vapor Liquid Solid (VLS) technique, which is commonly used to create semiconductor nano-wires, to thin films.
