  • OPV Solar Trees at EXPO 2015, ARGE OPV Consortium for German BMBF Case Study

    It sounds like science fiction: a feather-light solar generator hangs above a public space, its light, swaying form casting a pattern of shadows like leaves on a tree. But it’s real: individual solar cells are suspended from a net of steel cables, generating electricity at the same time as casting shade on the space below and protecting it from the elements. And it’s eye-catching, ...

  • Effect of trap depth and interfacial energy barrier on charge transport in inverted organic solar cells employing nanostructured ZnO as electron buffer layer

    Inverted organic solar cells with device structure ITO/ZnO/poly (3–hexylthiophene) (P3HT):[6,6]–phenyl C61 butyric acid methyl ester (PCBM)/MoO3/Ag were fabricated employing low temperature solution processed ZnO as electron selective layer. Devices with varying film thickness of ZnO interlayer were investigated. The optimum film thickness was determined from photovoltaic ...

  • For cheaper solar photovoltaic systems

    It is known for several decades, photovoltaic devices that exploit the sun's energy to convert into electricity used to provide a sustainable alternative - and potentially unlimited - the use of fossil fuels. So why these solar technologies have they not been adopted more widely? Simply “because they are too expensive," said Ji-Seon Kim, professor of Solid Physics at Imperial College of ...

  • Quantum dots of lead selenide: evolution of size and geometry and influence on photovoltaic effect

    Lead selenide quantum dots were synthesised by the colloidal chemical synthesis route at different reaction temperatures. The nanocrystals were characterised by X–ray diffraction (XRD), High–resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM) and FTIR spectroscopy. Diameter of the PbSe quantum dots increased with reaction temperature, with average diameter varying from 30 nm to 200 nm at reaction ...
