Perovskite/Silicon Tandem Solar Cells on Threshold of 30% Efficiency

Perovskite/Silicon Tandem Solar Cells on Threshold of 30% Efficiency

An HZB team has published a report in the journal Science on the development of its current world record of 29.15% efficiency for a tandem solar cell made of perovskite and silicon. The tandem cell provided stable performance for 300 hours - even without encapsulation. To accomplish this, the group headed by Prof. Steve Albrecht investigated physical processes at the interfaces to improve the transport of the charge carriers.

New Device Detects Which Hand Gestures You Want to Make

Imagine typing on a computer without a keyboard, playing a video game without a controller or driving a car without a wheel. That's one of the goals of a new device developed by engineers, that can recognize hand gestures based on electrical signals detected in the forearm. The system, which couples wearable biosensors with artificial intelligence, could one day be used to control prosthetics or to interact with almost any type of electronic device.
