New technique improves perovskite solar cells

Meniscus-assisted technique could lead to high efficiency perovskite films.

Submissions are being accepted for the 2018 OWSD-Elsevier Foundation Awards for Early-Career Researchers in Developing Countries.

Find out who will receive one of the 2016 Acta student awards.

A new low-temperature solution printing technique can fabricate high-efficiency perovskite solar cells with large crystals.

Scientists have produced the most detailed study yet of the thermal effects of semiconducting metal-nitride nanowires.

Using a new polymer material that undulates when illuminated, scientists have developed the first device for converting light directly into walking.

Halide perovskite semiconductors can emit multiple, bright colors from a single nanowire at resolutions as small as 500nm.

Scientists have created a novel 2D material in which electrons travel in one direction with one type of spin, which could be useful for spintronics.

Scientists have made theoretically-predicted heterostructural alloys, blends of compounds that don't share the same atomic arrangement.

A new semiconductor alloy that can capture near-infrared light could improve the efficiency and reduce the cost of concentrator photovoltaics.

A new way to create previously 'unrealistic' alloys with thin films could form the basis for next-generation semiconductors.
