Capturing Extra Energy From the Sun: Harnessing Hot Carriers for High Efficiency Solar Cells

External News Details

Perovskites may sound like menu items at your favorite Eastern European restaurant, but they serve up tasty options for those trying to extract more energy from solar cells. Two-dimensional perovskites offer even more flexibility for scientists to fine-tune those structures, which could mean more efficient, longer-lasting solar cells. That's the gist of new research from a team that includes Jean-Luc Brèdas, Regents Professor in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Georgia Tech.
