New study on a recently discovered chlorophyll molecule could be key to better solar cells

15 January, 2020
Science Daily
Photosynthesis, the process by which some organisms convert sunlight into chemical energy, is well known. But, it is a complex phenomenon, which involves a myriad of proteins. The molecule Chl f, a new type of chlorophyll, is known to play a part in photosynthesis, but owing to its recent discovery, ...

Can solar geoengineering mitigate both climate change and income inequality?

New research finds that solar geoengineering -- the intentional reflection of sunlight away from the Earth's surface -- may reduce income inequality between countries.

Growing strained crystals could improve performance of perovskite electronics

9 January, 2020
Science Daily
A new method could enable researchers to build more efficient, longer lasting perovskite solar cells and LEDs. By growing thin perovskite films on different substrates, engineers invented a way of fabricating perovskite single crystals with precisely deformed, or strained, structures.

Tests measure solar panel performance beyond established standards

2 January, 2020
Science Daily
In testing solar panels, the sun's intensity, the spectral composition and the angle of light are important factors in understanding why certain panels are successful and others degrade more quickly. To address the knowledge gap in degradation mechanisms for various photovoltaic types, researchers performed ...
