  • Indoor Light Recycling: A New Home for Organic Photovoltaics
    • Summary: Many people use “Solar Cell” and “Photovoltaic” interchangeably, but this misses the fact that photovoltaics can absorb any kind of light – not just sunlight (solar). In fact, solar cell devices that don’t work well in sunlight often have very different performances in indoor light. We explored the potential of some of these materials for powering indoor devices.

  • Evidence for Reduced Charge Recombination in Carbon Nanotube/perovskite-Based Active Layers
    • Summary: We found that mixing carbon nanotubes in with perovskites in photovoltaic devices can improve the performance by keeping electrons and holes from recombining, allowing more of them to reach their respective electrodes.

  • Organic Photovoltaic Devices and Methods Thereof
    • Summary: A patented method for making photovoltaic devices out of nanoparticles of organic polymers and small molecules which are suspended in water. The use of water in this method instead of typical solvents like chlorobenzene makes it a more environmentally-friendly method to manufacture many types of organic solar cells.
