Dyesol successful in 800,000 pound EPSRC grant application
The successful grant application is titled, Optimisation of charge carrier mobility in nanoporous metal oxide films.
The background to this proposed research is the recent joint discovery by Dyesol and Cristal that halide modified titania surfaces in Perovskite Solar Cell devices can provide a significant performance uplift.

TOTO Europe (photocatalysis coating)
TOTO Europe is a subsidiary of TOTO (Japan). The Hydrotect technology is a self-cleaning coating for building materials such as ceramic tiles. When used on outdoor surfaces and exposed to ultraviolet light, either from the sun or an artificial source, the photocatalytic surface generates a reaction that cleans the material surface by decomposing organic and by oxidizing NOx into less harmful substance. It can also be used for indoor surfaces to reduce the spread of bacteria and eliminate bad odours.

CristalACTiV photocatalysts, added as an active ingredient in paints or in construction materials or directly applied on a variety of substrates, provide de-polluting and self-cleaning functionality to the surfaces treated, rendering them photoactive. Harmful pollutants such as nitrogen oxides (NOx), volatile organic compounds (VOC) or sulphur oxides (SOx) are degraded to harmless substances when they come in contact with the photoactive surfaces.

Munich - global hub of energy harvesting
The Munich region has been a high-tech area for many years, and was once referred to as the silicon valley of Germany but it is much more than that, one major focus being the technology and use of energy harvesting.
