New CITYSOLAR research article published

High efficient and transparent solar cell?
The CITYSOLAR design strategy explained in a new collaborative work of CNR – ISM Istituto di Struttura della Materia, CHOSE Centre for Hybrid and Organic Solar Energy of Tor Vergata University and the Institute of Materials for Electronics and Energy Technology (i-MEET), Friedrich-Alexander Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg. The results has been established within the H2020 project CITYSOLAR (n. 101007084) and have been published on Rapid Research Letter Solar (2022)
