Fullerene-free solar cells are cheaper and reliable

Fullerene-free solar cells are cheaper and reliable
Polymer solar cells can be even cheaper and more reliable thanks to a breakthrough by scientists at Linköping University and the CAS. This work is about avoiding costly and unstable fullerenes. Polymer solar cells have in recent years emerged as a low cost alternative to silicon solar cells. In order to obtain high efficiency, fullerenes are usually required in polymer solar cells to separate charge carriers. However, fullerenes are unstable under illumination, and form large crystals at high temperatures.

Supercondenser can be charged by the sun

Supercondenser can be charged by the sun
Researchers at the Laboratory for Organic Electronics at Linköping University, Sweden, have created a supercondenser that can be charged by the sun. It contains no expensive or hazardous materials, has patents pending, and it should be fully possible to manufacture it on an industrial scale. In the future we could have a completely new type of energy storage, charged by heat energy – for example during the day when the sun shines, or by waste heat from an industrial process.
