CINE paper presents an industrial-friendly route for perovskite solar cells production

Perovskite solar cells may irrupt into the energy market in the near future. However, for this to happen, some challenges still need to be overcome. One of them is the production of these devices on an industrial scale. In fact, so far, there is no processes that meet all the necessary conditions for the industrial manufacture of these solar cells to become viable. Now, a development carried out by CINE […]

CINE research elucidates energy storage in supercapacitors

Speed ​​champions in the storage and delivery of electrical energy, supercapacitors can play a very important role in a society that is less and less dependent on fossil fuels and more and more reliant on the use of electricity. In order for supercapacitors to perform well and be able to store the greatest possible amount of energy, the choice of the electrode material is essential. Among the favorites are composites […]

CINE computational study selects two-dimensional materials for solar cells

A team from CINE used computational tools to screen two-dimensional materials from the dichalcogenated transition metals (TMDs) family, identifying the best candidates for use in high-performance solar cells. Among 72 materials initially evaluated, only three met all the conditions for this application. Completely carried out through computer simulations, the study made feasible a work that would require much greater resources and time if done experimentally through synthesis and characterization of […]

CINE team performs the first in operando characterization by DRX of a lithium-oxygen battery with redox mediators

The technology of lithium-oxygen batteries (Li-O2) may bring a significant increase in energetic density (quantity of energy stored by weight of battery) comparing to the devices that, today, are in the market, such as ion and lithium batteries. However, several limitations of this technology still need to be overcome to make their commercial use viable. For this, it is necessary to better understand the reactions that occur during the charge […]
