Explainers that can be used for education and videos from our school lab.
Perovskite is the new wonder material and the big hit in photovoltaic research. And because they complement silicon perfectly, perovskite and silicon can be used to develop super-efficient tandem cells. (ger)
What does an artificial leaf do and how can you build one? How can we technically capture and store solar energy? We are investigating this at HZB and are also using our synchrotron BESSY II for this purpose. (ger)
Movements in solar cells: How does the electric charge move within a solar cell and how can the efficiency of the cells be improved?
Function of a solar cell: What are the different parts of a solar cell and how does it function?
A conventional solar cell compared with a thin-film solar cell.
The video clip shows a complex solar cell with a so-called superstrate structure. This cell works like an "artificial leaf", using sunlight to split water and produce hydrogen gas. (ger)
Kelvin and the Gas Law: Why physicists prefer to measure temperature in Kelvin (ger)
The most important questions for BER II in two minutes (ger)
Levitating superconductor: This experiment is part of the project day "Magnetism and Superconductivity" in our school lab "Blick in die Materie"
Exploring magnetism in the school lab: pupils experimented with magnets in the pupils' laboratory at HZB and made interesting observations. (ger)
