How to Choose a Potentiostat

How to Choose a Potentiostat

Posted on Fri, Aug 28, 2020 by Chris Bracher

Choosing a potentiostat can be complicated, in part because the term describes a wide range of devices which differ significantly from one another in terms of both functionality and price. Broadly speaking, a potentiostat is any piece of equipment which controls the potential across a cell in response to changes...

Synthesis of Perovskite Quantum Dots

Synthesis of Perovskite Quantum Dots

Posted on Thu, Dec 19, 2019 by Thomas Fallows

Synthesising high quality quantum dots (QDs) can be a complex process.

During the original development of all-inorganic perovskite quantum dots, several synthetic routes were attempted in order to find a process that can reliably produce stable and defect resistant dots. Two major routes to the synthesis have now been developed: room temperate synthesis and synthesis by hot injection.

Perovskite Quantum Dots: A Rapidly Expanding Area of Research

Perovskite Quantum Dots: A Rapidly Expanding Area of Research

Posted on Fri, Nov 01, 2019 by Thomas Fallows

Over the last two decades, quantum dots have elicited a considerable amount of excitement and attention from both research scientists and the media. When Sony launched their XBR line of televisions in 2013, quantum dots successfully moved from pure research into the commercial sphere. Despite this, there are still some barriers to overcome before we can expect to see widespread adoption of quantum dot-based products.

The Role of Non-Fullerene Acceptors in Polymer Solar Cells

The Role of Non-Fullerene Acceptors in Polymer Solar Cells

Posted on Wed, Oct 16, 2019 by Hunan Yi

A great deal of focus has been given to non-fullerene acceptors (NFAs) in recent years, primarily around the research and development of bulk-heterojunction organic solar cells (OSCs). To a large extent they have taken the spotlight in this area away from fullerene derivatives like Phenyl-C81-Butyric Acid Methyl Esters (PCBMs).
