Transport and recombination of electrons in nanostructured solids

In the late 1990s, Daniel Vanmaekelbergh, Laurie Peter, and others observed that electron diffusion coefficient in dye-sensitized solar cells is density dependent. It was recognized that the electron lifetime is also density dependent, i.e., it depends on the specific position of the steady state Fermi level of electrons. 673 more words

Energy Systems

Designing appropriate energy systems for low-energy is quite a complex task really.  The electricity side of things, for grid connected houses, is relatively straightforward; generate what you sensibly can and export any surplus.  661 more words
