Quantum Dot Solar Cells Show Promising Results

Conventional solar cells capture photons in sunlight and turn it into electricity. This is also true for solar cells that use quantum dots as the photovoltaic material, but with quantum dots, it`s actually possible to harvest “lost” energy that otherwise would end up as heat. This feature is promising to improve overall conversion efficiency of solar […]Read More
