Optical materials news, July 2020

Researchers have developed a three-layer anti-reflection coating for making plastic sheets conductive and more transparent.

Researchers have found that a salt based on the organic compound piperidine can greatly improve the longevity of perovskite solar cells.

micropatterned substrate boosts perovskite light absorption

By shining laser light onto an impure crystal, researchers were able to cool a semiconductor cantilever to at least 20°C below room temperature.

A light-powered metal catalyst, comprising tiny spheres of aluminum dotted with specks of palladium, can break the strong chemical bonds in fluorocarbons.

Researchers have developed a family of polymer materials that come alive when hit with light – bending, rotating and even crawling on surfaces.
