The showcase presents a free-to-read selection of physica status solidi articles published in 2015.
Prof. Marius Grundmann from Universität Leipzig and his PhD student Robert Karsthof, MSc, and further coworkers have presented the first such transparent solar cell in a recent article in physica status solidi (a).
Atomically thin transition-metal-dichalcogenides (TMDCs) have recently attracted a lot of research interest. Like graphene, they can be prepared as two-dimensional crystals by exfoliation. Unlike graphene, they are semiconductors with large band gaps, which make them...
