TU Delft simulations help optimize solar cell efficiency
An international photovoltaics working group has developed a new transparent material to serve as a top layer for solar cells, based on nanocrystals. According to simulations performed by the participating TU Delft researchers, this layer can increase the efficiency of mass-produced solar cells to within a percent of their practical limit.

Stopping Alzheimer’s before it starts
This week the Dutch project ABOARD (A personalized medicine approach for Alzheimer’s disease), a collaboration of more than thirty partners, has been launched. ABOARD aims to prepare for a future in which Alzheimer’s disease is stopped before dementia has started. ABOARD achieves this by improving diagnostic markers, developing personalized risk scores and by focusing on prevention through increased awareness of dementia and brain health.

5.7 million euro for hybrid energy storage systems
The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy has allocated 5.7 million euro to FLEXINet. In the upcoming years, the FLEXINet consortium will develop hybrid energy storage systems – capable of storing both heat and electricity. Pavol Bauer, professor at TU Delft and project leader and coordinator: ‘The aim of FLEXINet is a system that accelerates the energy transition. We hope to make a substantial contribution to reaching climate targets by cleverly combining various techniques – think of blending recycled batteries with flexible heat pumps and the charging of electric cars.’

TU Delft scores at Olympic Games for chip designers
De Olympische Spelen vormen een graadmeter voor de sportprestaties per land. Maar wat weinig mensen weten, is dat er in de wereld van geïntegreerde schakelingen (chips) en slimme sensoren ook zo’n sportief meetmoment bestaat. Namelijk: de ISSCC. Voluit: de International Solid-State Circuits Conference. Het zijn de Olympische Spelen voor chipontwerpers, en die kent een geheel eigen medaillespiegel. Een klassement waarin de TU Delft tot de absolute top behoort.
