Japanese company develops a solar cell with record-breaking 26%+ efficiency
czwartek, 23 marca 2017 14:00

The silicon-based cells that make up a solar panel have a theoretical efficiency limit of 29 percent, but so far that number has proven elusive. Practical efficiency rates in the low-20-percent range have been considered very good for commercial solar panels. But researchers with Japanese chemical manufacturer Kaneka Corporation have built a solar cell with a photo conversion rate of 26.3 percent, breaking the previous record of 25.6 percent. Although it’s just a 2.7 percent increase in efficiency, improvements in commercially viable solar cell technology are increasingly hard-won.

Apple has finalized a deal to acquire Workflow - a tool that lets you hook together apps and functions within apps in strings of commands to automate tasks.

Workflow had raised an un-announced seed round of what we’re hearing was in the range of a couple million from Lowercase, Eniac and General Catalyst. The app was made by a small team that includes Ari Weinstein, a former iPhone jailbreaker.

Asustek Computer and Gigabyte Technology are expected to ship less than four million motherboards each in the first quarter, the lowest quarterly record in the past few years, while second- to third-tier players are expected to have even worse performances.
