Perovskite solar cells go single crystal

solar-cell-single-crystalline-ch3nh3pbi3-lg

Photovoltaic conversion is regarded as the ultimate solution to the mankind’s ever growing demand for energy, yet the traditional silicon-based solar cells are expensive to produce, and the production itself involves intensive energy consumption. The emerging hybrid organic-inorganic solar cells based on perovskite CH3NH3PbI3, on the other hand, are not only inexpensive to process but also flexible, and thus are widely pursued as one of the most promising next generation photovoltaic conversion technologies.

Since its first report in 2009, the photovoltaic conversion efficiency of perovskite solar cells (for example: GOAL ZERO NOMAD 13 ) has increased spectacularly from 3.81% to 22.1% in just 7 years, and such unprecedented rise has fueled worldwide pursuit for its efficiency record.

Nevertheless, in the last two years, the pace in perovskite solar cell efficiency increase has slowed down considerably despite that it is still far away from the projected theoretical limit of 31%. Therefore, researchers are exploring new strategies to further enhance the perovskite solar cell performance.

The current perovskite solar cells are based on polycrystalline CH3NH3PbI3 films, and thus inevitably have many defects in grains and grain boundaries that affect the device performance. Efforts have been made to produce bulk CH3NH3PbI3 crystals that exhibit exceptional photovoltaic properties such as long diffusion length and lifetime of photo-generated charge carriers, though the integration of bulk crystal into perovskite solar cell device architecture proves rather challenging.

Now a team of Chinese and US scientists from Shenzhen Institute of Technology, Shijiazhuang Tiedao University, Peking University, Argonne National Laboratory, Institute of Metal Research, and University of Washington, led by Profs. Jiangyu Li and Jinjin Zhao, has successfully grown single crystalline film of CH3NH3PbI3 directly on electron-collecting FTO/TiO2 substrate, as shown in Fig. 1.

They took advantage of temperature gradient and capillary effect during the growth process, enabling them to produce high quality single crystalline film tightly integrated on FTO/TiO2. This proves critical, as FTO/TiO2 is the most widely used electron-collecting substrate for perovskite solar cells, making the subsequent device fabrication straightforward.

Indeed, the single crystalline CH3NH3PbI3 film shows excellent photovoltaic properties. Measured directly on FTO glass substrate with poor electron extraction, the time-resolved photoluminescence shows much longer carrier lifetime in single crystalline CH3NH3PbI3 film compared to polycrystalline one, as seen in Fig. 2(a).

When a TiO2 electron collecting layer is added on top of FTO glass, then the charge carrier lifetime drops substantially, thanks to the efficient electron extraction at the TiO2/perovskite interface. As a result, the device exhibits photovoltaic conversion efficiency of 8.78%, the highest reported to date for a single crystalline perovskite solar cells.

The team pointed out that the system has much room for further improvement, and with continuous optimization of materials and devices, they believe that the single crystalline perovskite solar cells will rival their polycrystalline counterparts in the foreseeable future.

Gate operator

electric-gates-worksop

A gate operator is a mechanical device used to open and close a gate, such as one at the end of a driveway. There are two main types of electric gate openers – hydraulic or electromechanical; these can be further split into the following categories, worm (or screw) driven, arm openers and underground openers. Automatic and Electric Gate operators are designed for both swinging and sliding gates. They can be programmed to open and close with a wireless transmitter or a manual device. Low Voltage Automatic Gate openers can also be fitted with solar panels to ensure function during loss of electricity or blackouts.

Operator Types

Mechanical

Drawing power from the mains to open a driveway gate. Generally there are four types of electromechanical gate operator: Worm driven (or screw type) swing gates, barrier arm operators and sliding operators Electric and automatic gate openers are designed for both sliding and swinging gates. They can be programmed to open with a manual device or a wireless transmitter. Automatic gate operators can also be fitted with solar panels to operate without high voltage power. Many manufacturers offer battery backup either integrated or as an add on to systems that ensure function during loss of electricity.

Hydraulic

These are used to automatically open an electric driveway gate. As the name implies they use hydraulic fluids to operate their motion. Typically hydraulic operators have less moving parts than mechanical operators.

The hydraulic motors have a number of advantages when operating gates: they are capable of producing more power than mechanical motors for heavy sized barriers and do not have to work at full power when operating large gates.

Drawbacks of using hydraulic operated barriers are caused because of the technology itself, being under pressure, they tend to be harder to handle and less safe.

The best selling gate opener system is Mighty Mule 350. It can open gates up to five hundred fifty lbs. The system is designed to work in any weather. Mighty Mule 350 works with an automotive or marine battery. The best feature of this product is that Mighty Mule 350 is solar powered.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

· What’s sex habit?

Gender habit is definitely an excessive connection to erotic ideas, dreams or actions that the individual proceeds to interact in despite negative effects. These ideas, dreams or actions inhabit a disproportionate quantity of “psychic room”, leading to an difference within the individualis general operating in essential regions of existence, for example function and relationship. Stress, disgrace and shame concerning the actions erode the fanis currently fragile self esteem.

Sexual dependency could be conceptualized being an intimacy disorder demonstrated like a addictive period of preoccupation, ritualization, erotic conduct, and despair. Main towards the disorder may be the failure of the person to sufficiently relationship and connect in personal connections. The problem is grounded in early connection disappointment with primary caregivers. It’s a maladaptive a method to pay for this early connection disappointment. Habit is just a symbolic enactment of deeply established spontaneous structural interactions with home yet others.

As the description of gender habit may be the just like that of additional habits, erotic coercion is placed aside from different porn addiction help for the reason that intercourse entails our inward spontaneous desires, requirements, dreams, worries and issues.

Like other habits, it’s relapse vulnerable.

· how do you understand if my companion is just a sex fan?

Occasionally, it is challenging to understand whether somebody in your area comes with a sex addiction treatment NY. The fan may conceal the addictive behaviour or you will possibly not understand the indicators or signs.

Here are a few of the signs or symptoms:

* Keeping up late to look at tv or search the Net.

* Taking a Look At adult content for example publications, publications, movies and apparel catalogs.

* Often separating themselves from couples or companions, and does not tell them of the whereabouts.

* Are managing during intercourse or have regular mood shifts before or after intercourse.

* Are challenging about intercourse, particularly regarding time and location.

* Becomes upset if somebody exhibits worry of a problem with porn

* Provides no proper communication during sex

* Lacks closeness before, during and after intercourse, while offering little if any real closeness within the connection

* DoesN’t wish to socialize with others, particularly friends who may intimidate them

* Does Not take into account growing quantity of cost – 800 or 900 – calls

* Usually rents adult videotapes

* appears to be busy in public places with everything around them

* Has attempted to change to other styles of porn to exhibit deficiencies in sex addiction therapy NYC on a single type; make guidelines to reduce but does not stick to them

* Seems frustrated

* Is increasingly dishonest

* Covers porn at the office or property

* Lacks good friends of the same gender

* Often uses sexual humor

* Usually includes a valid reason for taking a look at porn (Psych Central.com).

· Why cannot he or she manage his/her intimate conduct?

It is important for you really to realize that your companion isn’t volitionally involved with these actions to help you start to comprehend and, possibly, eliminate. Many lovers might quit when they might.

It has been stated that of all of the habits, intercourse may be the hardest to handle. This problem is just a complicated combination of natural, mental, social, and household-of-source problems, the mixture of which produces desires and desires which are practically impossible to avoid. Even though that performing them out creates substantial long term damaging effects, the fan just cannot avoid his/her desires. Folks who are extremely disciplined, completed and in a position to direct the pressure of the will in the areas of existence fall victim to sexual coercion need trauma therapy. Moreover, individuals who enjoy and enjoy their companions may be enslaved by these amazing desires.

Study has additionally proven the failure to manage erotic desires is related to neurochemical imbalances within the norepinephrine, serotonin and dopamine systems. The usage of particular anti depressants (SSRIis) has therefore proved to be really efficient in managing the impulse-control issues of numerous sexual compulsives.

Natural predisposition adds and includes with mental elements. Among the factors the “sensual haze” is really required is the fact that it’s an unconscious but maladaptive method to repair earlier upset, panic-packed interactions. It shores up a feeling of home which benefits from these early-existence social abandonments, uses and misattunements.

This mixture of natural and mental elements leads to an “effective disorder” within the sex fan. Sensation of despair, panic, indifference and gap are rapidly relieved by dipping yourself within an imaginary planet providing you with uniqueness, enjoyment, secret and extreme enjoyment. Sex addiction therapy is preferable to Prosac. It repairs, it reduces, it has, it offers a “secure location” free of the needs of real efficiency, also it provides an illusory feeling of belonging. The feeling of power within the illegal intercourse work rectifies “openings within the spirit” and pulls the fan from emotions of drawback, deficit, despair and gap right into a state-of immediate excitement.

Relinquishing this really unique (but delusional) psychological and bodily condition can lead to a feeling of withdrawal which might contain mood shifts, failure to focus and frustration. These signs often disappear in treatment whilst the feeling of home is solidified and he discovers more innovative methods to cope with unpleasant emotions.

Harvest of Quilts: Past, Present & Future

AR-151029251[1]

Members of the Brandon Piecemakers Quilt Guild have been sewing all year and will showcase their work at the 2015 Harvest of Quilts: Past, Present & Future show. It will be open to the public for viewing from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Nov. 6 and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 7 at The Regent, 6437 Watson Road.

The show, which is presented to promote the art of quilt making, will feature at least 140 quilts.

“A significantly higher number than any of our previous shows,” said Debbie Williams, guild president. “We think all visitors, young and old alike, will enjoy this event. And nonquilters will be so inspired that they will want to learn more.”

The quilts represent 15 categories, including pieced, applique, mixed and other techniques in a variety of sizes from miniature to large. This is the first year a modern category is being introduced.

Judges will evaluate the quilts for appearance, construction techniques, color, design and quilting stitch and will award ribbons for best of show, best hand-quilting, best long-arm quilting, best home-machine quilting, judge’s choice and viewer’s choice.

The guild sponsors a quilt show every two or three years and donates proceeds to local and national charities. This year, the show will benefit The Porch Light, theporchlight.org, an organization that provides a safe home to help child victims of domestic sex trafficking.

Some quilts will be for sale, and other homemade items will be sold at the show’s Fab Finds Gift Shop. More than 40 small quilts will be included in a silent auction. There will be drawings for gift baskets and a Janome 6600 sewing machine donated by Keep Me in Stitches.

Fourteen quilting-related vendors will display products and demonstrate techniques at the show: Keep Me in Stitches, Heritage Quilt Shop, Eurosteam, Wild Violet Quilt Studio, Bernina Sewing Centre, Pat’s Sacks, Material Girlz of Florida, Martelli, Gigi’s Fabric Shop, Sweet Darling Quilts, Quilts on Plum Lane, Clermont Sewing and Quilting, Happy Apple Quilts and Florida Quilting Center.

There will be judged and nonjudged quilts and exhibition quilts and nonexhibition handmade quilts for sale. The Fab Finds Gift Shop will sell used books, magazines and patterns, and handmade bibs, table runners, pin cushions, quilted bags, crayon holders, quilted table-top organizers, microwave bowls, thread catchers, needle cases, coin purses, aprons, casserole carriers, pot holders, Christmas ornaments, wine carriers, coasters and tote bags.

Layer cakes and jelly rolls — not food, but color-coordinated fabric squares and strips — also will be available for purchase.

“Quilters come by car, carpool and bus to attend,” said Nan Ryan, publicity chairwoman. “All are welcome to look and learn.”

Admission is $7 per person. With advance reservations, the fee is $5 per person in groups of 15 or more. Contact Ryan at rnryan@verizon.net.

More information about the Piecemakers Quilt Guild is available at brandonquiltguild.com. The guild includes award-winning members and novices. Meetings are at 6:45 p.m. (doors open at 6) the second Monday each month at First United Methodist Church, 120 Knights Ave. N., Brandon.

Content Strategies for Customer Engagement

20170124154713-content

The most fundamental modern-marketing skill is copywriting. Content marketing has, therefore, become a key business strategy in 2016 and will continue to be so in 2017. This post will give you a closer look into how you can use content to grow your business.

It has never been easier for brands and customers to interact and engage with one another. This heightened access that brands have to their customers (and vice versa) would make you think that companies are selling more than ever before. But most are not skipping, hopping and jumping their way to the bank. Why?

As a result of this hyper-connected world we live in, customers are no longer interested in being sold to. Instead, they want to engage with their favorite brands and experience their respective brand culture in ways that weren’t previously possible.

Achieving this level of engagement with customers requires a content strategy that is built upon a foundation of obsessing over them and imparting the greatest value to them. This value is not dollars and cents; it is not offering them the best deals, but rather the best experience, whether that is through creating a superb end-to-end customer journey, helpful and insightful blog content, strong customer support or other means.

You are going the extra mile and providing them with experiences that move the customer-brand relationship beyond simply buyer and seller. In fact, 38 percent of millennial consumers report that they are more loyal to brands that focus more on the consumer than the brand itself. In other words, you aren’t trying to extract revenue or get them to buy; you are just connecting and communicating with them as a brand.

Customer engagement creates revenue without direct sell

Again, customer engagement is not about directly extracting revenue. But before you go jumping ship with the notion that your company cannot afford to invest in a strategy that does not create revenue, consider a few things first.

9 Sales and Marketing Tips for Startups

20170123203741-gettyimages-508065181

Marketing done right can be an incredible boon for your business’s net income. Done wrong, however, it can feel like throwing money into a raging bonfire. Because small business owners have to be whatever their small business needs — all the time — it can be difficult to master all the nuances that go into sales or marketing. If you’re not a natural salesperson, it can be even more difficult. Fear not, the following nine marketing tips for startups can help you make more sales, market better and waste less money.

1. Sell the benefit, not a comparison.

How you market yourself is all about highlighting what makes you different. There are three major ways to do that.

  • Cost (you know how to price a product better than the competition)
  • Quality (you’re better)
  • A combination thereof (you offer the better value)

But how you sell yourself is different than how you market yourself. You can tell someone that you provide a product or service that is cheaper or more effective than that of another business, but that doesn’t say how much better you are going to make the customer’s life.

Selling is about the benefit. A comparison may highlight the features you offer, but you are always selling benefit.

2. Listen to your customer.

Sam Walton, WalMart’s famed mass retail titan, started his empire in rural America. This was despite the prevailing business logic saying a mass retailer anywhere but in a city with a concentrated population would fail. The logic was, if you wanted to move mass quantities of goods, you needed mass quantities of people.

But Walton knew his customers because he would frequently listen to them firsthand. He was aware that people who lived in rural and suburban areas often bought in larger quantities because they had larger families or needed more goods to keep their own small businesses stocked and running. Walton listened to his customers, and the result is the largest, most powerful brick and mortar retailer in the world. The customer may at times defy logic, but they are always right. Listen to them.
