The design of next-generation solar panels can now be improved thanks to a greater fundamental understanding of the structure within a key component ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science In a world hungry for cheaper, more efficient renewable energy, Australian researchers have served up a treat. […] However, in a paper published in Journal of Materials Chemistry C, members of Exciton Science based at the University of Melbourne, together with collaborators at Australia’s national science agency CSIRO and Shandong University, have provided evidence for a sandwich-like structure, in which two layers of the same type (the bread) surround one central, contrasting layer (the filling).
