Researchers Boost Performance of Solar Cells By Using Human Hair From a Barbershop

Researchers have used carbon dots, created from human hair waste sourced from a barbershop, to create a kind of ‘armor’ to improve the performance of cutting-edge solar technology. In a study, the researchers led by Professor Hongxia Wang in collaboration with Associate Professor Prashant Sonar of QUT’s Centre for Materials Science showed the carbon nanodots could […]

Perovskite solar modules: High efficiency on a large surface area

(Karlsruher Institut für Technologie (KIT) ) From cell to module without loss of efficiency: Researchers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) have managed to produce perovskite solar modules with minimum scaling loss. For this purpose, they combined laser-based series interconnections with vacuum processing of all layers of the solar cell. They achieved an 18 percent efficiency on an area of four square centimeters – a world record for vacuum-processed perovskite solar modules.

The world needs to dramatically cut methane emissions to avoid worst of climate change, UN says – CNBC

Flames from a flaring pit near a well in the Bakken Oil Field. The primary component of natural gas is methane, which is odorless when it comes directly out of the gas well. In addition to methane, natural gas typically…
