Graphene Solar Cells Now One Step Closer — Graphene Retains Its Unique Set Of Properties…

Graphene solar cells are now one step closer to reality, thanks to a new discovery made by researchers at the HZB Institute for Silicon Photovoltaics. The discovery: the many impressive properties of graphene, such as extreme conductivity and “complete” transparency for example, are apparently completely unaffected by the application of … [continued]

3-D Graphene — The Future Of Solar Cells?

3-D graphene can function as an effective — and very economical — substitute for the platinum that is commonly used in dye-sensitized solar cells, according to new research from Michigan Technological University. By substituting the newly created and relatively cheap material known as three-dimensional graphene for the very expensive and … [continued]
