Australian photovoltaics researchers have made a ‘cool’ discovery: Singlet fission and tandem solar cells — two innovative ways to generate solar power more efficiently — also help to lower operating temperatures and keep devices running for longer.Tandem cells can be made from a combination of silicon — the most commonly used photovoltaics material — and new compounds like perovskite nanocrystals, which can have a larger bandgap than silicon and help the device to capture more of the solar…
