  • Nanotechnology cuts costs and improves efficiency of photovoltaic cells

    Researchers have summarised the most effective ways that nanostructures can improve the efficiency and lower costs of photovoltaic (PV) solar cells in a recent analysis. Sculpting ultra-thin solar cell surfaces at the nano-scale has been found to effectively boost their efficiency. Making solar cells ultra-thin reduces their material costs, but often at the expense of their efficiency. These ...

The new approach is based on the discovery that unexpected quantum effects increase the number of charge ...

  • Dust bowl threat

    Dust storms accelerated by a warming climate have covered the Rocky Mountains with dirt whose heat-trapping properties have caused snowpacks to melt weeks earlier than normal, worrying officials in Colorado about drastic water shortages by late summer. Snowpacks from the San Juan Mountains to the Front Range have either completely melted or will be gone within the next two weeks, said Tom ...

  • Nanowires may boost solar cell efficiency, UC San Diego engineers say

    University of California, San Diego electrical engineers have created experimental solar cells spiked with nanowires that could lead to highly efficient thin-film solar cells of the future. Indium phosphide (InP) nanowires can serve as electron superhighways that carry electrons kicked loose by photons of light directly to the device’s electron-attracting electrode — and this scenario could boost ...
