Swapping Silver for Copper to Break Solar Panel Efficiency Record

Swapping Silver for Copper to Break Solar Panel Efficiency Record

SunDrive Solar received certification from the Institute for Solar Energy Research Hamelin that their commercially-sized silicon solar cell had achieved a 25.54% efficiency. This efficiency surpassed the previous world record of 25.26%, held by LONGi Solar, the world's leading manufacturer of mono-crystalline solar modules. Silicon is currently the dominant solar cell technology, and this technology comprised 95 per cent of all solar modules installed in 2020.

3D Nano-inks Push Industry Boundaries

A new, 3D-printable polymer nanocomposite ink has incredible properties — and many applications in aerospace, medicine and electronics. Mechanical engineering researchers have created a way to make a 3D-printable nanocomposite polymeric ink that uses carbon nanotubes — known for their high tensile strength and lightness. This revolutionary ink could replace epoxies — and understanding why its properties are so fantastic is a first step toward its mass use.
