New research illuminates future of tandem solar cells
A team of researchers from Nextgen Nano may have found a new way of accelerating the development of high efficiency Organic PhotoVoltaic (OPV) technology. Nextgen Nano’s latest research demonstrated that a relatively simple material, HSolar, was widely compatible as an InterConnecting Layer (ICL) with multiple solar cell materials in tandem solar cells. The material also showed stable performance and high efficiency, which were re...
Nanotechnology challenges the solar debate
Could an evolution in photovoltaics sidestep arguments against solar panels? Nanotechnolgy has the potential to deliver more efficient, flexible solar panels, driving innovation and new applications and a release from centralised power source, says Dr Franky So is chief technology officer of Nextgen Nano.
Could nanotechnology address the emissions epidemic?
Many governments have made bold commitments to ban petrol and diesel vehicles from our roads to reduce CO2 emissions. For example, UK Environment Secretary Michael Gove claimed this was achievable by 2040. Such claims are widely dismissed as impossible, in part due to our reliance on centralised fossil fuel-produced power sources.
