Heating up rust could make large-scale solar power storage possible

By Stephanie Liverani / March 4, 2016

Is the key to large-scale solar power storage rusting before our eyes? Researchers at Stanford University (Stanford, Calif.) found that ordinary metal oxides, such as rust, can be made into solar cells capable of splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen by day for energy use at night.

New solar cell design uses ‘invisible’ nanowires to harness power potential of reflected light

By Stephanie Liverani / December 2, 2015

Scientists at Stanford University in California are developing a new solar cell that uses ‘invisible’ nanowires to redirect sunlight that is reflected away and lost with traditional solar cell designs.
