    A new stable and cost-cutting type of perovskite solar cell

    yesterday - SB Scientists at the Michael Grätzel Center for Mesoscopic Cells have made a perovskite solar cell that does not require a hole-conducting layer. The novel solar cell achieved energy conversion efficiency of 12.8% and was stable for over 1000 hours under full sunlight. The innovation is expected to significantly reduce the cost of these promising solar cells.

    A breakthrough in understanding brain-learning processes

    21.07.14 - NCCR-Synapsy Professor Dominique Muller, co-director of the National Center of Competence in Research, Synapsy, and his team at the University of Geneva, have discovered a new cellular mechanism that plays a role in long-lasting neuronal connection stability. Excitingly this mechanism reveals a previously unsuspected and important role for non-neuronal cells called astrocytes. The results, published in Current Biology, may lead to a better understanding of neurodegenerative and neurodevelopmental diseases.
