Solar UK: Scientists develop pioneering new spray-on solar cells
posted by on Friday, August 01, 2014 - 01:00 PM

gfoat writes "A team of scientists at the University of Sheffield are the first to fabricate perovskite solar cells using a spray-painting process – a discovery that could help cut the cost of solar electricity. The discovery could help cut the cost of solar energy. Perovskite is a promising new material for solar cells. It has high efficiency with low materials costs. The Spray-painting method could be used in high volume manufacturing. Experts from the University’s Department of Physics and Astronomy and Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering have previously used the spray-painting method to produce solar cells using organic semiconductors - but using perovskite is a major step forward."

Solar Solar-powered prototype robot for Polar pioneers
posted by on Wednesday, April 05, 2006 - 08:07 PM

gfoat writes "The next generation of Antarctic explorers could be robots capable of driving hundreds of kilometres and doing scientific experiments alone. That was the vision unveiled by US scientists and engineers at a major science meeting recently in Vienna. The team have built a solar-powered prototype robot and tested it in Greenland, where it has "exceeded expectations". See more details at BBC NEWS"
