    New Nanocavity May Improve Light Absorption in Solar Panels and Optoelectronic Devices

    Researchers at the University of Buffalo have developed a photonic structure, or optical nanocavity, comprised of aluminum and aluminum oxide (Al2SO4). According to researchers, placing a single layer of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) molecules atop this optical nanocavity can increase the amount of light the semiconducting material is able to absorb. A nanocavity is an arrangement of mirrors that […]
