Passive solar-powered system could prevent ice buildup

Passive solar-powered system could prevent ice buildup
From airplane wings to overhead powerlines to the giant blades of wind turbines, a buildup of ice can cause problems ranging from impaired performance all the way to catastrophic failure. But preventing that buildup usually requires energy-intensive heating systems or chemical sprays that are environmentally harmful. Now, MIT researchers have developed a completely passive, solar-powered way of combating ice buildup.

Imec beats silicon PV with 27.1% perovskite-silicon tandem

Imec beats silicon PV with 27.1% perovskite-silicon tandem
Imec has announced a record result for its 4-terminal Perovskite/silicon tandem photovoltaic cell. With a power conversion efficiency of 27.1%, the imec tandem cell beats the most efficient standalone silicon solar cell. Further careful engineering of the Perovskite material will bring efficiencies over 30% in reach. Perovskite microcrystals are a promising material system to make high-performance thin-film solar cells.
