Substantial improvement in essential cheap solar cell process

A cheap alternative to silicon solar cells can be found in dye-sensitised solar cells. This type of cell imitates the natural conversion of sunlight into energy by, for instance, plants and light-sensitive bacteria. A researcher at TU Delft has succeeded in substantially improving a process in this type of solar cell, which is similar to Graetzel cells.

Tiny buckyballs squeeze hydrogen like giant Jupiter

Hydrogen could be a clean, abundant energy source, but it's difficult to store in bulk. In new research, materials scientists at Rice University have made the surprising discovery that tiny carbon capsules called buckyballs are so strong they can hold volumes of hydrogen nearly as dense as those at the center of Jupiter.
