The claim is that dye-sensitized solar cells that use a new process and the materials perovskite could dramatically lower the price of solar cells.
Looking to reduce costs, researchers in Switzerland successfully use a semiconductor based on iron oxide (yep, rust) in their photoelectrochemical water-splitting device.
New research suggests that carbon nanotubes could be an efficient alternative for the expensive platinum electrodes in dye-sensitized solar cells.
Researchers in Finland are claiming that a form of solar cells that can be applied to surfaces as a coat of paint could herald the future of solar energy.
Dye-sensitized solar cells made with protein and low-toxicity dye were successful in tests by K-State graduate student Ayomi Perera, their inventor.
The Sun2Charge, a solar charger design by Jake Beadenkopf via Coroflot, delivers a flexible, miniature solar panel comprised of dye-sensitized solar cells.
Visitors to Aalto University’s Multidisciplinary Institute of Digitalisation and Energy Demo Day made solar cells from carbon nanobuds and blueberries.
