Image of the Week

Our Image of the Week this week comes from a Journal of Physics D: Applied Physics Letter. In their letter Wei-Chen Tu et al investigate the use of three methods to increase the efficiency of textured Silicon solar cells: reduced graphene oxide (rGO), gold nanoparticles… Read More ›

Pinning Down Perovskites

Perovskite solar cells have shaken up the solar cell research community. Never before has a new kind of material reached efficiencies that are competitive with those of the industry standard, silicon, as quickly as the perovskites have. But, what is a perovskite?
