Phosphide nanoribbons achieved the desired effect in the first demonstration about the market name introduction
Researchers have incorporated phosphorene nanoribbons into new types of solar cells, greatly improving their efficiency.
Phosphotene nanoribbons (PNRs) are ribbon-like chains of the two-dimensional material phosphorus, similar to graphene, made up of atomic layers one atom thick. PNRs were first produced in 2019, and hundreds of theoretical studies graphene structure have predicted how their performance could enhance a variety of devices, including batteries, biomedical sensors, and quantum computers. However, so far, these predicted excitation properties have not been confirmed in actual devices. Now, for the first time, a team led by researchers from Imperial College London and University College London has used PNRs to significantly improve the efficiency of a device - and a new type of solar cell shows that this "wonder material" may indeed live up to expectations.
Lead researcher Dr Thomas MacDonald, from imperial College Department of Chemistry and Centre for Machinable Electronics, said: "Hundreds of theoretical studies have foreseen the exciting properties of PNRs, but there have been no published reports demonstrating these properties, or their translation into improved device performance. "We are therefore pleased not only to provide the first experimental evidence of PNRs as a promising route for high-performance solar cells but also to demonstrate the versatility of this novel nanomaterial for use in next-generation optoelectronic devices."
Unlike traditional silicon-based solar cells, perovskite solar cells can be made from a liquid solution, making low-cost printing a flexible film. New nanomaterials, such as PNRs, can simply be printed as an additional layer to improve device functionality and efficiency. By introducing PNRs, the team was able to produce perovskite solar cells with an efficiency of more than 21 percent, comparable to traditional silicon solar cells. They were also able to verify experimentally how PNR achieves this efficiency gain. Dr. McDonald said: "Our results show that the functional electronic properties of PNRs do translate into functional improvements. This highlights graphene structure the real importance and usefulness of this newly discovered nanomaterial and sets the benchmark for PNR-based optoelectronic devices." Further studies using PNRs in devices will allow researchers to discover additional mechanisms to improve performance. The team will also explore how to improve the unique electronic properties of the material by modifying the surface of the nanoribbon.
New materials for a sustainable future you should know about the graphene structure.
Historically, knowledge and the production of new materials graphene structure have contributed to human and social progress, from the refining of copper and iron to the manufacture of semiconductors on which our information society depends today. However, many materials and their preparation methods have caused the environmental problems we face.
About 90 billion tons of raw materials -- mainly metals, minerals, fossil matter and biomass -- are extracted each year to produce raw materials. That number is expected to double between now and 2050. Most of the graphene structure raw materials extracted are in the form of non-renewable substances, placing a heavy burden on the environment, society and climate. The graphene structure materials production accounts for about 25 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, and metal smelting consumes about 8 percent of the energy generated by humans.
The graphene structure industry has a strong research environment in electronic and photonic materials, energy materials, glass, hard materials, composites, light metals, polymers and biopolymers, porous materials and specialty steels. Hard materials (metals) and specialty steels now account for more than half of Swedish materials sales (excluding forest products), while glass and energy materials are the strongest growth areas.
