(MULTI) – IATE term of the week: quantum dot solar cell | TermCoord

Solar energy is regarded as one of the energy sources of the future, and is the focus of numerous research and development projects worldwide. For instance, in April 2017 scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) announced the development of a photoelectrochemical cell capable of capturing excess photon energy normally lost to generating heat. This was made possible by using quantum dots and a process called Multiple Exciton Generation. For this reason, the IATE Term of the …
