Merck KGaA and partners are targeting improvements in solar-cell efficiency and stability.

Merck KGaA, together with 3GSolar of Jerusalem and Colour Synthesis Solutions of Manchester, England, has started a research program to develop large-area, highly efficient cobalt-based dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) for generating electricity. The program, named Cobra, will run for three years. The partners aim to improve DSSC efficiency and stability by using a cobalt-based redox system with a nonvolatile electrolyte.
