Researcher develops new way to measure defects in perovskite
Solar energy is ending up being a progressively preferred source of renewable resource. Current solar panels with silicon as their main component are inexpensive and reliable. However, using a reasonably new material, perovskite, could dramatically improve the solar cell's effectiveness. TU/e researcher Bas van Gorkom developed a very sensitive technique for measuring defects in the crystal framework of perovskite. This is necessary, since a far better quality of crystal can improve the stability of perovskite.

Eindhoven scientists existing cutting edge light-emitting silicon
Emitting light from silicon has actually been the 'Holy Grail' in the microelectronics market for years. Fixing this problem would certainly change computer, as chips will certainly come to be quicker than ever before. Scientists from Eindhoven University of Technology currently was successful: they have actually established an alloy with silicon that can emit light. The outcomes have actually been released in the journal Nature. The group will certainly currently begin developing a silicon laser to be incorporated right into existing chips.
