Organic Solar Cells: Spinning efficiency

Researchers at the University of Cambridge (Cambridge, U.K.) and the University of Washington (Seattle, Washington USA) have tackled the problem of relative inefficiency of organic solar cells by orchestrating their electronic ‘spin.’ It could be a breakthrough…. Organic solar cells have so much promise. Instead of silicon, these solar cells are constructed with polymers – […]

Pushing the efficiency envelope: Solid oxide fuel cell

Nothing illustrates the incremental nature of improving alternative energy methods better than the push to increase efficiency. Whatever the process, (chemical, solar, combustion) the more efficient the conversion of the energy source (sunlight, fuel, chemicals) into electricity, the better. With fuel cells, which convert a fuel source such as hydrogen or methane into electricity, it’s […]
