Enhanced stability and efficiency in hole-transport-layer-free CsSnI3 perovskite...
Tin perovskite PV cells appear to be more stable than previously thought, making them a viable alternative to lead perovskite solar cells.

KIT - KIT - Media - Press Releases - PI 2015 - Crack it! Energy from a Fossil Fuel without carbon di-oxide
Hrm, I suppose if you had a handy methane source and a heat source (1200 C?!?), this is interesting (GenIV nuclear reactor maybe), but probably the more interesting aspect is the pure carbon powder byproduct, suitable for making carbon fiber and similar. I suppose if you wanted to make graphene, using natural gas from town as both an energy source and a carbon source for production might be a good match...

Ultralow thermal conductivity and high thermoelectric figure of merit in SnSe crystals : Nature : Nature Publishing Group
So apparently, cutting the crystals along a specific axis improves ZT tremendously. So then the trick is doing a single crystal large scale growth.
