High-speed surveillance in solar cells catches recombination red-handed

Date: February 14, 2019 Source: Osaka UniversitySummary: Using synchronized lasers pulses, researchers developed a new method of electrostatic force microscopy that can record movies with frames as fast as 300 nanoseconds. This is fast enough to watch electrons move inside solar cells, which can lead to more efficient solar power devices. This is a schematic [...]
