Major Leap for Stable High-Efficiency Perovskite Solar Cells

Major Leap for Stable High-Efficiency Perovskite Solar Cells

Solar cells manufactured from materials known as perovskites are catching up with the efficiency of traditional silicon-based solar cells. At the same time, they have advantages of low cost and short energy payback time. However, such solar cells have problems with stability - something that researchers have now managed to solve.

Robo-Bug: a Rechargeable, Remote-Controllable Cyborg Cockroach

Robo-Bug: a Rechargeable, Remote-Controllable Cyborg Cockroach

Researchers have created remote controlled cyborg cockroaches, equipped with a tiny wireless control module that is powered by a rechargeable battery attached to a solar cell. Despite the mechanic devices, ultrathin electronics and flexible materials allow the insects to move freely. These achievements will help make the use of cyborg insects a practical reality.

Synhelion Starts Construction of DAWN to Produce Solar Fuels

Synhelion marks the start of construction work on DAWN - the world's first industrial plant to produce synthetic fuels using solar heat. Located in Jülich, Germany, the facility will be the first to demonstrate the entire process from concentrating sunlight to producing synthetic liquid fuel on an industrial scale. SWISS will be the first airline to fly using the CO2-neutral solar kerosene produced there.
