Exciting New Breakthroughs In Solar Energy

By adding a new layer to common solar cells, UCLA researchers estimate they can reduce solar energy costs by about a fifth, in a relatively simple process that can easily be incorporated into mainstream solar cell manufacturing.

A New Technique for Dual Layer Solar Cells Shattered Efficiency Records

A new kind of solar cell developed by researchers at the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering just shattered the previous efficiency record for how much energy can be harvested from direct sunlight. The new cells trap more than a fifth of the sun’s incoming energy.
