York Researchers develop new method to improve efficiency of solar cells

Posted on 25 October 2013

Researchers from the Universities of York and St Andrews have developed a new method to increase the efficiency of solar cells.

The new method achieves highly efficient broad-band light trapping in thin films, with more light captured in the film in order to maximise absorption and electricity generation.

The research was reported in Nature Communications. For further information please see the Universities news item.
