There are more than 2.6 gigawatts of SunPower solar power plants operating worldwide.
Now three Stanford engineers have developed a technology that improves on solar panel performance by exploiting this basic phenomenon.
Now an interdisciplinary team at Stanford has made a semiconductor crystal with a variable band gap. Among other potential uses, this variable semiconductor could lead to solar cells that absorb more energy from the sun by being sensitive to a broader spectrum of light.
We have developed a low-voltage, single-catalyst water splitter that continuously generates hydrogen and oxygen for more than 200 hours,
Our study shows that this material has exceptional energy storage capacity, enabling unprecedented performance in lithium-sulfur batteries and supercapacitors
Stanford has created a new program that aims to help these professionals gain competitive advantage with online education they can apply immediately in their work.
