New theory may lead to more efficient solar cells
A new theoretical model developed by professors at the University of Houston and Université de Montréal may hold the key to methods for developing better materials for solar cells. The scientists say the model could lead to new solar cell materials made from improved blends of semiconducting polymers and fullerenes. The researchers describe their findings in the Jan. 29 issue of Nature Communications.
