Antimonite has potential applications for solar energy, but how its layered structure changes under pressure is incompletely understood. Here diamond anvil cell experiments supported by first principles calculations offer a structural explanation for experimentally observed phase transitions.
Hydroquinone redox mediator enhances the photovoltaic performance of chlorophyll-based bio-inspired solar cells
Excited state dynamics of chlorophyll derivatives applied in bio-solar cells are not fully understood. Here, time-resolved absorption study on these derivatives reveal enhanced lifetimes of radical species in the presence of hydroquinone would further enhance the corresponding device performance.
