ARENA announces funding of project to be led by AUCAOS member Dr David Jones aiming to increase solar cell efficiency.

The project is entitled “New Materials-Singlet Fission Enhanced Silicon Solar Cells” and aims to demonstrate effective use of high energy photons in order to improve solar cell efficiency by using multiple exciton generation (MEG).

This exciting project will include AUCAOS members Dr David Jones of Melbourne University, and Dr Paul Shaw and Professor Paul Burn of The University of Queensland.
