UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI RESEARCH PARTNERSHIP EXPLORES HOW TO BEST HARNESS SOLAR-POWER
March 02, 2015
CINCINNATI, March 2 -- University of Cincinnati issued the following news release: A University of Cincinnati research partnership is reporting advances on how to one day make solar cells stronger, lighter, more flexible and less expensive when compared with the current silicon or germanium technology on the market. Yan Jin, a UC doctoral student in the materials science and engineering program, Department of Biomedical, Chemical, and Environmental Engineering, will report results on March 2, at the American Physical Society Meeting in San Antonio, Texas. Jin will present on how a blend of conjugated polymers resulted in structural and electronic changes that increased efficiency three-fold, by incorporating pristine graphene into the active layer of the carbon-based materials. The technique resulted in better charge transport, short-circuit current and a more than 200-percent improvement in the efficiency of the devices. "We investigated the morphological changes underlying this effect by using small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) studies of the deuterated-P3HT/F8BT with and without graphene," says Jin.
