Latest Low-cost photovoltaic cell Stories
Two Queen’s researchers have contributed to a significant breakthrough in solar technology.
Today’s solar cells have several limitations, including high production costs, low efficiency and durability, and reliance on scarce materials for production.
Taking their cue from the humble leaf, researchers have used microscopic folds on the surface of photovoltaic material to significantly increase the power output of flexible, low-cost solar cells.
The public is being kept in the dark about the viability of solar photovoltaic energy.
