RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT: Earth-abundant pixels produce hydrogen for weeks

A collaboration between researchers from the University of Cambridge and Imperial College London demonstrated that artificial leaves made of readily available oxide and carbon-based materials can produce hydrogen from water over several weeks.

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT: Secret to treating ‘Achilles’ heel’ of alternatives to silicon solar panels revealed

A team of researchers from the UK and Japan has found that the tiny defects which limit the efficiency of perovskites – cheaper alternative materials for solar cells – are also responsible for structural changes in the material that lead to degradation

RESEARCH HIGHLIGHT: Low-cost battery-like device absorbs CO2 emissions while it charges

Researchers have developed a low-cost device that can selectively capture carbon dioxide gas while it charges. Then, when it discharges, the CO2 can be released in a controlled way and collected to be reused or disposed of responsibly.
