Perovskites under pressure: Hot electrons cool quicker
In solar cells, about two third of the power of sunshine is shed. Half of this loss is due to a process called 'warm carrier cooling' where high energy photons shed their excess power in the form of warmth before being transformed to electricity.

Perovskites under pressure: Hot electrons cool down quicker
In solar cells, regarding 2 third of the power of sunshine is lost. Fifty percent of this loss results from a process called 'hot provider cooling' where high power photons shed their excess power in the form of warm before being converted to electrical energy. Researchers at AMOLF have actually located a way to control the speed of this process in perovskites by using stress to the product.

Mystery of amorphous perovskite resolved
AMOLF researchers Erik Garnett, Susan Rigter, and also colleagues are the initial to have irrefutably shown that amorphous perovskite exists. The material can dramatically increase the efficiency of solar cells produced from perovskite. The research study is published today in the journal Advanced Functional Products.

A new generation of nano-architected, 3D solar cells
A group of scientists at Netherlands based research institute AMOLF have discovered a method for electrochemical printing at the nanoscale. With further optimizations, the group theorizes, the technique could allow for the development of new, three dimensional solar cells.
