Material properties for longer-lasting, more efficient solar cells — ScienceDaily

The designers of solar cells know their creations must contend with a wide range of temperatures and all sorts of weather conditions — conditions that can impact their efficiency and useful lifetime. Florida State University Assistant Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry Lea Nienhaus and former FSU postdoctoral researcher Sarah Wieghold are helping to understand the […]

Researchers investigate material properties for longer-lasting, more efficient solar cells
