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.

UCL to host a national supercomputer centre
UCL has received £4.5 million from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) to build a national supercomputer centre to improve support for UK researchers making scientific breakthroughs, such as designing better batteries and improving drug design. Since 2016, the Materials and Molecular Modelling Hub led by UCL, has brought together partners in London's Thomas Young Centre and others across the country to carry out ground-breaking research on the properties of new and existing materials, and this new funding will build on the Hub's capability.

Oil-catching sponge could soak up residue from offshore drilling
Oil-catching sponge could soak up residue from offshore drilling
An oil-catching sponge, developed at the University of Toronto and Imperial, could help thwart water contamination from offshore oil drilling. Drilling and fracking for oil under the seabed produces 100 billion barrels of oil-contaminated wastewater each year by releasing tiny oil droplets into surrounding water.
