solar cells using quantum dots

New World Record set for Quantum Dots Solar Cells

Engineers made quantum dot solar cells that can be made into flexible, thin films, and generate electricity in low-light conditions. Thanks to a significant breakthrough at The University of Queensland, it might be possible for us to generate power on homes, cars, and phones with highly efficient flexible solar “skins.” The engineers have been studying […]
