Computational Chemistry

A group of researchers at the University of Marburg are addressing the challenge of designing functional materials by making use of computational chemistry. This study was undertaken at the High Performance Computing Center in Stuttgart, which is a national supercomputing center in the country and a part of the Gauss Centre for Supercomputing.

Perovskite Silicon Tandem Solar Cells

An HZB team has been able to improve the efficiency of perovskite silicon tandem solar cells, by achieving about a 25.5 percent increase. This is the highest value to be ever published till date. The team employed computational simulations to research light conversions in numerous device designs through different kinds of nanostructured surface.  More Details about the Enhancements Brought in For Perovskite Silicon Tandem Solar Cells The HZB team has

Solar Cell

Researchers at the Ruhr-Universität Bochum and University of Wuppertal have developed a new fabrication process for transparent ultra-thin silver films that can help improve efficiency of solar cell. More Insights into the Improvements Brought Forth in Solar Cell Functioning A team of scientists headed by Professor Anjana Devi and Nils Boysen from the research group Inorganic Materials Chemistry is working on this study. The research is being done in collaboration


Students from the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Cape Town have made the first ever bio-bricks from human urine. The phenomenal creations were unveiled earlier in this week, and were developed mainly by Suzanne Lambert and Vukheta Mukhari. More Insights Into the Bio-bricks Creation By Students From UCT Both students were supervised by Dr. Dyllon Randall, and this creation highlights a significant landmark in the field of


The properties of ethanol have been studied for a long time now, and the primary reason behind such exhaustive studies is to excavate the potential held by ethanol for climate protection. An advanced diesel engine developed at TU Wien can run on 70% bioethanol, a commendable value for the energy sector. The engine developed by TU Wien simultaneously deploys two fuels viz. diesel and bioethanol, the former being used for
