Researchers have used simulation and experiments to illustrate that introducing a small nanoscale texturing on the surface of materials in perovskite or silicon tandem solar cells can remarkably raise the efficiency by decreasing the amount of light energy lost by reflection.
Scientists from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC) affiliated with the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) have developed a novel material to manufacture affordable and effective all-solid-state Li ba...
Through a new award program, the U.S. National Science Foundation and the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (German Research Foundation, DFG) have joined forces to award the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign and Technical University of Darmstadt a three-year $720,000 research grant to explore opportunities to more efficiently produce green hydrogen, a clean and renewable source of energy.
New European Union regulations on batteries could offer a huge boost to the global decarbonisation mission - but only if it leverages its political and economic weight to ensure a fairer global marketplace.
Extrel CMS, the experienced expert in quadrupole mass spectrometry for gas and ion analysis, has launched a new power supply, bringing high-quality performance to more vacuum research systems than ever before.
Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories have designed a new class of molten sodium batteries for grid-scale energy storage. The new battery design was shared in a paper published today in the scientific journal Cell Reports Physical Science.
The photovoltaic effect of ferroelectric crystals can be increased by a factor of 1,000 if three different materials are arranged periodically in a lattice.
Lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) have shown considerable development with advances in technology and have revolutionized the world, powering everything right from smartphones to electric cars.
Urea, a vital element, is found in all things ranging from skincare commodities to fertilizers. Urea is a natural product of human urine; however, mass production of urea is a huge undertaking and accounts for around 2% of global emissions and energy utilized.
Researchers have been attempting to make reliable lithium-metal batteries for a long time. Such high-performance storage cells contain 50% more energy compared to their prolific, lithium-ion equivalents.
