KAUST researchers raised bar for solar energy harvesting

To increase the performance of solar panels, an international collaboration; including researchers from King Abdullah University of Science & Technology (KAUST); and U of T Engineering, created a bifacial, or two-sided, tandem solar cell, built by bringing together the best of the perovskite and silicon technologies. Out in the field, light primarily comes directly from...
