Visualization of carrier dynamics on photoactive material surfaces
Four-dimensional scanning ultrafast electron microscopy is used to selectively map charge-carrier recombination, diffusion, and trapping, with extremely high spatial and temporal resolutions.
Novel structures exhibit highly directional emission and provide a template for site-controlled quantum dots and self-aligned nanophotonic cavities.
12 January 2017
A multiple-cation engineering strategy is used to realize devices with open-circuit voltages that are close to the thermodynamic limit, as well as high electroluminscence and stability at elevated temperatures.
29 December 2016
The photoelectrochemical performance of hematite photoanodes for water splitting is boosted by increasing the charge-separation efficiency and suppressing surface electron–hole recombination.
22 December 2016
A unique optical phenomenon allows ultrafast, light-dependent control over the photocurrent response of a single-phase material.
21 December 2016
A broadband, omnidirectional light-harvesting layer replicated from plant surfaces improves light management in thin-film solar cells.
