New Strategy to Improve Thermal Stability of Small-Molecule-Based Bulk-Heterojunction Organic Photovoltaics

New Strategy to Improve Thermal Stability of Small-Molecule-Based Bulk-Heterojunction Organic Photovoltaics

Using flexible aliphatic chains to link conjugated molecular semiconductors Andrea Gasperini devloped a polymeric material that possesses defined conjugated segments but extended covalent connectivity that enhances crystallinity and thermal stability in field-effect transistors and bulk heterojunction solar-cell devices when used as an additive. The results are pulished in Advanced Materials. [More]

Nanoscale Spheres can be used in Telecommunication Systems, Disease Diagnosis

Nanoscale Spheres can be used in Telecommunication Systems, Disease Diagnosis

In several years - maybe in one or two decades, but maybe sooner or never - one of the existing problems will be solved in an original way: our computers, nanoantennas and other kinds of equipment will operate on the base of photons, rather than electrons. [More]

Inexpensive Femtosecond Laser Generates Ultrashort Pulses of Light Even Under Extreme Environmental Conditions

Inexpensive Femtosecond Laser Generates Ultrashort Pulses of Light Even Under Extreme Environmental Conditions

A team at the University of Warsaw, Faculty of Physics has created a laser capable of generating ultrashort pulses of light even under extremely difficult external conditions. This unique combination of precision and resilience is due to the fact that the whole process of generating femtosecond laser pulses takes place within a specially-selected optical fiber. [More]

Surprising Discovery at HZB Could Advance Hybrid Organic/Inorganic Solar Cells

Surprising Discovery at HZB Could Advance Hybrid Organic/Inorganic Solar Cells

An HZB team headed by Prof. Silke Christiansen has made a surprising discovery about hybrid organic/inorganic solar cells. Contrary to expectations, a diode composed of the conductive organic PEDOT:PSS and an n-type silicon absorber material behaves more like a pn junction between two semiconductors than like a metal-semiconductor contact (Schottky diode).
