Next-generation solar cells from graphene

NUS Newshub reports:

"Longer-lasting and better - the next-generation solar cells and optoelectronic devices will tout these properties and more when created from a combination of graphene and other one-atom thick materials, reported a group of scientists from the University of Manchester and NUS.

The breakthrough work was published in Science recently. The team managed to identify the ideal combination of materials - new photosensitive class of two-dimensional materials called transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDC) with optically transparent and conducive graphene - which collectively create a very efficient photovoltaic device, pointed out Professor Antonio Castro Neto, Director of the Graphene Research Centre at NUS and corresponding author of the paper."
