Excitons will shape the future of electronic devices

It's a whole new way of thinking about electronics. Excitons - or quasiparticles formed when electrons absorb light - stand to revolutionize the building blocks of circuits. Scientists have been studying their extraordinary properties in order to design more energy-efficient electronic systems, and have now found a way to better control excitons moving in semiconductors.

Biological material boosts perovskite solar cell performance

Next-generation solar cells that mimic photosynthesis with biological material may give new meaning to the term 'green technology'. Adding the protein bacteriorhodopsin to perovskite solar cells boosted the efficiency of the devices in a series of laboratory tests, according to an international team of researchers.
