An innovation that continues along the path of creating greater efficiency in our contemporary lifestyles, researchers at the University of Toronto have been playing around with the photovoltaic properties of perovskite when combined with quantum dots.
Perovskite has recently emerged in the electronics sector as a key prospect for implementing greater efficiency in semiconducting materials. What the team has discovered is that when “grown” in a specific manner, the crysalline structures of both the quantum dots and the perovskite enable superior light production when provided electricity. The impacts of this are huge, with much of the world still struggling to implement reliable power infrastructure there are large efforts to fill in these gaps. One of the main areas of development is in renewable energy, where solar panels are becoming a primary source of power for much of the world, and using that energy effectively is the next concern now that power is available.
