The electrolytes of high-performance dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) have previously contained volatile solvents, which need robust encapsulation if they are to be used outdoors. Now, Michael Graetzel and co-workers from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology and the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Changchun have developed stable and solvent-free ionic liquid electrolytes through the rational mixing of three solid imidazolium salts [1].

If North Korea tried to teach Libya how to go nuclear, then South Korea may be able to help the Middle-Eastern country divert to a safer, cleaner and more plentiful type of energy ? the sun. The Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) said Tuesday that it will develop an advanced type of solar energy generation system for the Renewable Energies and Water Desalination Research Center (REWDRC) of Libya.
