ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science

Going fission! How scientific enquiry by UNSW may push solar cell efficiency to 38.2%

Cross-pollination of scientific and engineering thought within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Exciton Science has led to promising findings on the the cool solar-cell efficiency-boosting mechanism known as singlet fission.

Let there be light! And the research to harness it

Some of Australia’s most thrilling thinkers are scientifically investigating the applications of light and developing new light-absorbing materials. Like human investment in space travel the dedication to solar research is paying back beyond its remit. pv magazine talks to one far-reaching centre of excellence in the field.

Australian research improves the scope and efficiency of PV light sensitisers

Australian scientists have developed an algorithm to increase both the efficiency and compatibility of light sensitisers in solar panels, encompassing silicon cells for the first time.

Australian researchers take solar windows to the next level

Solar windows have taken a big leap forward on the back of a new partnership between Australian scientists and a major glass manufacturer which will investigate the use of semi-transparent solar cells in commercial applications, potentially revolutionizing building design.
