On charging your phone with your jumper

Imagine having your your battery charger printed on your clothes or on the screen of your cellphone… this is what Organic Nanostructured Photovoltaics group, at ICFO is proposing. The use of organic electronics allows the production of  flexible cells which happen to be highly inefficient. By layering nanoparticles in a clever way, they’ve been able to increase the performance of these devices, thus solving the problem.

With the help of Dr. Silvia Colodrero, we created this picture which made it to the cover of Advanced Functional Materials.

Molecular selfies

People at the ICFO have rocked the boat again. This time by taking pictures of chemical reactions with unprecedent space and time resolution. And we were lucky enough to make this picture for them, representing the process.

No surprise this research has been published in Science.
