A team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has just announced a new breakthrough in the field of graphene research, leading to the next generation of high-efficiency solar cells, computers and other advanced technologies. Graphene, a new material…  …

Scientists unveil solar cells the width, flexibility of spider silk

Austrian and Japanese researchers on Wednesday unveiled solar cells thinner than a thread of spider silk that are flexible enough to be wrapped around a single human hair. The thin-film device, comprising electrodes on a plastic foil, is about 1.9 micro-metres thick, a tenth the size of the thinnest solar…

China firms knock U.S. duties on solar products

Chinese firms have accused the United States of setting up trade barriers after Washington slapped duties on their solar products in the latest trade row between the two countries. Washington said Tuesday it would collect duties of between 2.9 and 4.7 percent on Chinese solar cells and panels, in a preliminary ruling following an investigation over…

China ‘deeply concerned’ over U.S. solar ruling

BEIJING — China said it was “deeply concerned” after a US trade panel ruled that Chinese companies have harmed the US solar panel industry by selling products at unfairly cheap prices. The US International Trade Commission voted unanimously on Friday that there was a “reasonable indication” that Chinese solar cell…
