Scientists shed light on organic photovoltaic characteristics

Scientists have developed a method that allows the prediction of the current density-voltage curve of a photovoltaic device. This new method uses a common measurement technique (impedance spectroscopy) that is affordable, widely available to manufacturers, and relatively easy to perform.

Inhomogeneous surface plasmon polaritons

Scientists have discovered a new way to control light. Light can be guided along the surface of a metal via a surface plasmon polariton phenomenon. When light guided along the surface of one metal encounters a different metal surface, the new type of plasmon called an 'inhomogeneous surface plasmon polariton' results that has controlled confinement properties.
