Organic semiconductors are lightweight, flexible and easy to manufacture. But they often fail to meet expectations regarding efficiency and stability. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are now deploying data mining approaches to identify promising organic compounds for the electronics of the future. Producing traditional solar cells [...]

Interfaces and Interferences

Sep 27, 2018|

Photocells, catalysis, batteries? What is the most efficient and sustainable way to capture and convert energy into useful forms? The new Cluster will study the processes that take place at the interfaces between different materials. The current level of energy consumption is estimated to be equivalent to around 14 [...]
