Perovskite-silicon solar cell research collaboration hits 25.2% efficiency

“Perovskite-based tandem solar cells can use light particularly efficiently and therefore offer the opportunity to achieve even higher efficiencies. That is…

A nanotech sensor that turns molecular fingerprints into bar codes

However, scientists at EPFL's School of Engineering and at Australian National University (ANU) have developed a compact and sensitive nanophotonic system that…

When superconductivity disappears in the core of a quantum tube

Predicting the behaviour of electrons in a material is not easily done. Physicists from the University of Geneva (UNIGE), ETH Zurich and EPFL replaced the…

The key to chemical transformations

Catalysis is a field of chemistry that studies materials that can accelerate or bring about chemical transformations. Hu has distinguished himself through his…

Wood goes high-tech

Wood is not just a conventional material, it also has great innovation potential as a high-tech component and raw material for chemistry. This is one of the…

Gold shines through properties of nano biosensors

With their remarkable electrical and optical properties, along with biocompatibility, photostability and chemical stability, gold nanoclusters are gaining a…

A gene increases the severity of common colds

Colds that are not linked to influenza are generally benign. Still, 2% of each generation of children have to go to hospital following a virulent infection….

A 100-year-old physics problem has been solved at EPFL

At EPFL, researchers challenge a fundamental law and discover that more electromagnetic energy can be stored in wave-guiding systems than previously thought….

Ultra-stable perovskite solar cell remains stable for more than a year

The lab of Mohammad Khaja Nazeeruddin at EPFL in collaboration with Michael Grätzel and Solaronix company has engineered what is known as 2D/3D hybrid…
