OPV Cells With High Electric Potential For Portable Electronics
2012-10-11 13:04:17

A new breakthrough in solar technology means portable electronic devices such as e-book readers could soon be re-charged on the move in low light levels and partial shading. Scientists from the University of Warwick, in collaboration with spin-out company Molecular Solar, have created an organic solar cell that generates a sufficiently high voltage to recharge a lithium-ion battery directly, without the need to connect multiple individual cells in series. Modules of these high voltage cells...

Solar power cells are limited by the wavelengths of light they can absorb from the sun. Ideally a solar cell would absorb every wavelength, but to date the goal has not been reached. Silicon, today's photovoltaic industry standard, is limited in the wavelength range it can 'see' and absorb.
