New technique way that could advance the solar industry

A Washington State University team has developed a more efficient, safer, and cost-effective way to produce cadmium telluride (CdTe) material for solar cells or other applications, a discovery that could advance the solar industry and make it more competitive. The researchers showed they could rapidly grow a large amount of high-purity CdTe material,a more than Read more about New technique way that could advance the solar industry[…]

A flexible semiconductor for electronics, solar technology and photo catalysis

It is the double helix, with its stable and flexible structure of genetic information, that made life on Earth possible in the first place. Now a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has discovered a double helix structure in an inorganic material. The material comprising tin, iodine and phosphorus is a semiconductor with Read more about A flexible semiconductor for electronics, solar technology and photo catalysis[…]
