Tandem solar cell world record: New branch in the NREL chart

CIGS cells, which consist of copper, indium, gallium and selenium, can be deposited as thin-films with a total thickness of only 3 to 4 micrometers; the…

World record for tandem perovskite-CIGS solar cell

Perovskite-based solar cells have experienced an incredibly rapid increase in efficiency over the last ten years. The combination of perovskites with classical…

New record for flexible thin-film solar cells

Flexible solar cell with unprecedented efficiency: The Empa Laboratory for Thin Films and Photovoltaics, headed by Ayodhya N. Tiwari, has broken its own…

Dual-layer solar cell developed at UCLA sets record for efficiently generating power

The device is made by spraying a thin layer of perovskite — an inexpensive compound of lead and iodine that has been shown to be very efficient at capturing…

The role of Sodium for the Enhancement of Solar Cells

Green energy gained by photovoltaic amounts ca. 6% of Germany’s gross power production . The most common solar cells currently used are made out of silicon….

Graphene leans on glass to advance electronics

Graphene, the two-dimensional powerhouse, packs extreme durability, electrical conductivity, and transparency into a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon. Despite…

Tandem solar cells are simply better

What is true for double-blade razors is also true for solar cells: two work steps are more thorough than one. Stacking two solar cells one on top of the other,…

Perovskites provide big boost to silicon solar cells, Stanford study finds

The researchers describe their novel perovskite-silicon solar cell in this week's edition of the journal Energy & Environmental Science.

Hannover Messe: Glass-like diffusion barrier for flexible CIGS solar cells for spraying

From 7 to 11 April 2014, the researchers of the INM will be presenting this and further results in Hall 2 at the stand C48 of the Hannover Messe in the context…

INM among the 21 German exhibitors at nano tech 2014 in Japan
