  • UO-industry collaboration points to improved nanomaterials

    A potential path to identify imperfections and improve the quality of nanomaterials for use in next-generation solar cells has emerged from a collaboration of University of Oregon and industry researchers. To increase light-harvesting efficiency of solar cells beyond silicon's limit of about 29 perc more

  • Scientists get to the heart of fool's gold as a solar material

    As the installation of photovoltaic solar cells continues to accelerate, scientists are looking for inexpensive materials beyond the traditional silicon that can efficiently convert sunlight into electricity. Theoretically, iron pyrite - a cheap compound that makes a common mineral known as fool's g more

  • New materials for more powerful solar cells

    Applying a thin film of metallic oxide significantly boosts the performance of solar panel cells - as recently demonstrated by Professor Federico Rosei and his team at the Énergie Matériaux Télécommunications Research Centre at Institut national de la recherche scientifique (INRS). The researchers h more

  • Improvement of power generation efficiency of solar cells and evaluation by fluorescence spectroscopy

    The light in the high-radiance wavelength region of the solar spectrum is not utilized effectively by silicon crystal-based solar cell modules. "Fluorescent materials" convert the ultraviolet component in the sunlight into light in the longer wavelength region where this solar cell modules can generate power. This article describes an example, how the efficiency of a fluorescent material can be evaluated, using a fluorescence spectrophotometer equipped with an integrating sphere, and a special program, which allows the determination of quantum yields of powders in a very comfortable way. more
