University of Salford to research third generation solar cells

30th April, 2013

The University of Salford is to conduct theoretical work on third generation solar cells, which will use revolutionary semi-conductor nanostructures in order to significantly increase the electricity produced by sunlight from around 10% efficiency to 31% or more.

The impact of this research, which is funded, among others, by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, UK, and the Royal Society, London, is a significant development in the de-carbonising of energy supplies.
