Even if imprisoned inside a crystal, molecules can still move

For the first time, a study has shown that residual movements continue to animate proteins inside a crystal and that this movement 'blurs"' the structures obtained via crystallography. The study stresses that the more these residual movements are restricted, the better the crystalline order.

Research improves efficiency from larger perovskite solar cells

Perovskite solar cells are cheaper to make than traditional silicon cells and their electricity conversion efficiency is improving rapidly. To be commercially viable, perovskite cells need to scale up from lab size. Researchers report a method for making perovskite cells larger while maintaining efficiency.
