Printed coatings enable more efficient solar cells
Printed coatings enable more efficient solar cells
Researchers at Cambridge, Imperial and Singapore have developed a method to print ultrathin coatings on next-generation solar cells, allowing them to work in tandem with silicon solar cells to boost efficiencies. Photovoltaics, or solar cells, work by absorbing sunlight to produce clean electricity. But photovoltaics can absorb only a fraction of the solar spectrum, which limits their efficiencies.

Learn from the pandemic to prevent environmental catastrophe, scientists argue
Learn from the pandemic to prevent environmental catastrophe, scientists argue
COVID-19 is comparable to climate and extinction emergencies, say scientists from the UK and US - all share features such as lagged impacts, feedback loops, and complex dynamics. The consequences of continued inaction in the face of catastrophic climate change and mass extinction are too grave to contemplate Andrew Balmford The dynamics of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic share "striking similarities" with the twin environmental crises of global heating and species extinction, argue a team of scientists and policy experts from the UK and US.
