A family of new topologies for dc to ac inverter circuitry with auxiliary self-boosting of the dc input voltage. [read more]
A scheme to produce colloidal nanocrystals of iron pyrite (FeS2) and a p-n heterojunction thin film solar cell based on sintered films of these nanocrystals on flexible substrates. [read more]
A method for synthesizing iron pyrite (FeS2) semiconductor films on solid substrates to serve as the active layer of a solar energy conversion device (e.g. solar cell). [read more]
Stand-alone solar-powered devices have traditionally been operable only when sunlight is available or when surplus energy is stored in a rechargeable battery to ensure that the device stays powered in the absence of sunlight. [read more]
Researchers at the University of California, Irvine have developed a novel method to continuously pattern nanofibers on 2D and 3D substrates. A unique polymer ink formulation provides the right balance of viscosity and elasticity necessary to enable controlled, seamless near-field electrospinning of nanofibers at very low voltages.
