Perovskites can work together with QDs to improve LED and solar technologies

Researchers from the Universitat Jaume I and the Universitat de València have studied the interaction of two materials, halide perovskite and quantum dots, revealing significant potential for the development of advanced LEDs and more efficient solar cells. The researchers quantified the “exciplex state” resulting from the coupling of halide perovskites and colloidal quantum dots. Both known separately for their optoelectronic properties, but when combined, these materials yield longer wavelengths than can be achieved by either material alone, plus easy tuning properties that together have the potential to introduce important changes in LED and solar technologies. Quantum dots (QDs) are a family of semiconductor materials with very interesting light-emitting properties, including the ability to tune what wavelengths light is emitted at. They are also useful in both LEDs and solar cells.…

Dyesol gets ready to launch a Major Area Demonstration Prototype for its perovskite PV technology

Dyesol, global leader in the development and commercialization of Perovskite Solar Cells (PSC), has announced that it has appointed VDL Enabling Technologies Group to assist in the development of a Major Area Demonstration Prototype. The 1st Phase contract involves a specialist engineering study resulting in the preparation of a Feasibility & Functional Specification for Perovskite Major Area Demonstrator development. This phase will be conducted over a 4 month period commencing immediately. It is expected that upon the successful completion of the initial study, a 2nd Phase of design and development will follow, and the 3rd Phase will be Realization. The 3 phase project is expected to be completed in the 1st half of 2017. Dyesol considers the manufacture of a Major Area Demonstration Prototype as a critical step in the…
