Optical materials news, June 2016

Scientists have enhanced the light-harvesting abilities of solar cells by giving them a surface that replicates the structure of rose petals.

A lightweight sunshield has been developed to protect the mirrors and instruments aboard the James Webb Space Telescope from solar radiation.

Scientists have made ultra-thin solar cells from gallium arsenide that are flexible enough to wrap around the average pencil.

Novel combinatorial libraries of nanoparticles can allow the rapid screening of millions of different nanoparticles for specific properties.

By using novel branched ligands, scientists have produced perovskite nanocrystals with greatly improved stability and uniform particle size.

Scientists have developed a novel tri-layer metasurface solar absorber comprising a layer of amorphous carbon sandwiched between thin gold films.

Scientists have created complex 2D and 3D structures, including a cube and a prism, made from DNA and nanoparticles.

Read about the event at IMDEA Materials Institute, Madrid, Spain, which will honor Professor Subra Suresh.

A method for embedding light-emitting nanoparticles into glass without losing any of their unique properties could lead to the development of smart glass.

By incorporating tiny clusters of silver atoms into zeolite pores, scientists have produced a novel and efficient phosphorescent material.
