  • Physics, photosynthesis and solar cells

    A University of California, Riverside assistant professor has combined photosynthesis and physics to make a key discovery that could help make solar cells more efficient. Nathan Gabor is focused on experimental condensed matter physics, and uses light to probe the fundamental laws of quantum mechani more

  • Fabrication technique leads to broader sunlight absorption in plastic solar cells

    Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a new strategy for fabricating more efficient plastic solar cells. The work has implications for developing solar cells with a wider absorption range and increased efficiency. As plastic solar cells now rival silicon-based solar cells i more

  • Solar smart window could offer privacy and light control on demand

    Smart windows get darker to filter out the sun's rays on bright days, and turn clear on cloudy days to let more light in. This feature can help control indoor temperatures and offers some privacy without resorting to aids such as mini-blinds. Now scientists report a new development in this growing n more
