Solar & Alternative Energy

Solar fuel production for sustainable energy supply
A plasmonically enhanced photoelectrochemical cell could convert wastewater and carbon dioxide to hydrocarbon fuel for a sustainable on-site energy source.
The plasmonic-electrical effect can be used to shorten the transport path of low-mobility carriers and overcome the space-charge limit in organic semiconductors.

Inflatable deformable transducers promise effective and affordable devices to obtain energy sustainably.
18 May 2015
With its twisted, porous nanostructure, the helical nanofilament liquid crystal phase, otherwise known as the ‘B4 banana phase,’ could pave the way to more efficient organic photovoltaics.
27 April 2015
Three-dimensional microstructures encrusted with 2D nanomaterials represent a promising platform for novel energy sources for implantable electronic devices such as pacemakers.
15 April 2015
Embedding a network of highly efficient microscale solar cells between a pair of plastic lenslet arrays leads to fixed-tilt concentrating photovoltaic panels that are less than 1cm thick.
