Nanostructures for ultrathin flexible wafer
Researchers in South Korea integrated 2 processes to engrave a nanostructure of little pyramids onto the surface of a silicon wafer. Along with trapping much more light and also enhancing the cell effectiveness, the team declares that its nanostructure improves the mechanical flexibility of the cells. This can potentially enable making use of much thinner silicon wafers than is currently feasible in manufacturing.

Enhancing the performance of solar cells with 'graphene armor'
A group of scientists, connected with UNIST has actually thought of a novel electrode that might substantially boost the security of perovskite solar cells (PSCs), one of the most promising prospect for the next generation solar cells because of their low cost and high power conversion effectiveness. This is due to the fact that putting a protection layer in between the metal-based electrode as well as the perovskite movie can stop metal-induced deterioration and that graphene, thus a layer, can effectively subdue the diffusion of steels and also halide ions.
