Metavalent bonding shows physically observable features that are “between those of covalency and metallicity, but distinctly different from both”.
Roll-to-roll laser-induced superplasticity, a new fabrication method, prints metals at nanoscale for making electronic devices.
Top researchers analyse the latest advances in the interfacial engineering of perovskite solar cells, toward improved performance and device stability.
The addition of extremely small crystals to solid electrolyte material has potential to raise the efficiency of fuel cells. Researchers at TU Delft were the first to document this accurately.
Two dyes give three colors on a hierarchically patterned surface, in work by German and Chinese scientists.
A novel polymer processing methodology to prepare thin films allows for increased crystallinity giving rise to improved properties.
What is the ideal nano-morphology for organic and hybrid solar cells? A progress report from a German research group sheds light on recent developments.
Conductive metallic 3D nanostructures can be made inside a single crystal of a photocatalytically active metal-organic framework, say Belgian scientists.
Encapsulated metal nanoparticles can be extracted from carbon nanotubes through reverse capillary action.
“It seems like the whole world is working on solar cells; trying to make them better, cheaper and safer to cope with the looming global energy drought.” Professor Geoffrey Ozin talks about the current state of solar cell research.
New special issue guest edited by Rick Laine appears in Applied Organometallic Chemistry
A coating of single-walled carbon nanotubes improves the performance of li-ion cell cathodes: They show longer lifetimes and stable capacities even at very high rates.
