New discovery settles long-standing debate about photovoltaic materials
www.solarenergyconnect.com

Ames, IA (SPX) Apr 20, 2020 Scientists have theorized that organometallic halide perovskites– a class of light harvesting “wonder” materials for applications in solar cells and quantum electronics– are so promising due to an unseen yet highly controversial mechanism called the Rashba effect. Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Ames Laboratory have now experimentally […]
