Precision Spray Coating for Better Performing, Stable Solar Cells

Precision Spray Coating for Better Performing, Stable Solar Cells

Although perovskites are a promising alternative to the silicon used to make most of today's solar cells, new manufacturing processes are needed to make them practical for commercial production. To help fill this gap, researchers have developed a new precision spray-coating method that enables more complex perovskite solar cell designs and could be scaled up for mass production.

Why Are We Still Talking About Hydrogen Economy and Fuel Cells?

Why Are We Still Talking About Hydrogen Economy and Fuel Cells?

Once every ten years the promising future of a hydrogen economy and fuel cells is announced. Hydrogen over the years has had several periods of hypes, which always blow off as nothing concrete, but why are we still talking about it? And why is there still the belief of a hydrogen economy, when Li-ion batteries are dominating the market?

Using the Shadow Effect to Generate Electricity

Using the Shadow Effect to Generate Electricity

Shadows are often associated with darkness and uncertainty. Now, researchers are giving shadows a positive spin by demonstrating a way to harness this common but often overlooked optical effect to generate electricity. This novel concept opens up new approaches in generating green energy under indoor lighting conditions to power electronics.
