Hole transport breakthrough produces stable perovskite solar cells

A novel perovskite solar cell retains more than 95% of its 20% conversion efficiency under full sunlight illumination for more than 1000 hours.

Researchers have shown how laser light can be used to forge graphene into 3D objects such as a pyramid.

A novel fabric-like material electrode could help make batteries and supercapacitors faster and less susceptible to leaks or meltdowns.

Two new energy storage technologies, comprising a novel electrode and catalyst, could enhance lithium-ion batteries or replace them entirely.

Biomass used to make carbon microspheres for energy storage.

Novel filler for polymer composite used hollow glass microspheres and carbon fibers to bring unique combination of properties.

A thin layer of oxidation on graphene-wrapped magnesium nanoparticles can enhance rather than hinder their hydrogen storage.

Using a novel quantum sensor, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material.

Glassy carbon is lightweight, ultrastrong, very hard, elastic, and electrically conductive and is ideal for military armor and aerospace applications.

Nanostructured graphene-niobia composite provides a framework for electron transport and tunable pores for the rapid movement of ions.

Graphene and quantum dots combined with CMOS integrated circuits create a broadband image sensor that works as a digital camera.

A single study has found that graphene displays superlubricity and that hexagonal boron nitride is as strong as diamond but lighter and more flexible.

Scientists have quadrupled the capacity of the anode in lithium-ion batteries by simply replacing graphite with silicon.

By sandwiching rare earth metals between layers of graphene, scientists have been able to control its band gap.

Scientists have developed a way to convert fallen leaves into a porous carbon material for use as a supercapacitor electrode.
