Higher solar cell efficiency thanks to perovskite magic crystal

Researchers have come up with a procedure that makes it possible to produce thin film tandem solar cells in which a thin perovskite layer is used. The processing of peroveskite takes place at just 50 degrees Celsius and such a process is potentially applicable for low cost roll-to-roll production in future.

Smart supercapacitor fiber with shape memory

Researchers have introduced a new type of fiber-shaped supercapacitor for energy-storage textiles. Thanks to their shape memory, these textiles could potentially adapt to different body types: shapes formed by stretching and bending remain 'frozen', but can be returned to their original form or reshaped as desired.
