New materials for more powerful solar cells

Applying a thin film of metallic oxide significantly boosts the performance of solar panel cells — as recently demonstrated by Professor Federico Rosei and his team at the Énergie Matériaux Télécommunications Research Centre at Institut national de la recherche scientifique. The researchers have developed a new class of materials comprising elements such as bismuth, iron, chromium, and oxygen. These ‘multiferroic’ materials absorb solar radiation and possess unique electrical and magnetic properties —> Read More Here
