Flexible Glass Used To Extend Life Of Organic Solar Modules
2014-07-09 03:06:59

Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft Organic solar modules have advantages over silicon solar cells. However, one critical problem is their shorter operating life. Researchers are working on a promising solution: they are using flexible glass as a carrier substrate that better protects the components. This approach is already being employed in electronic devices to some extent today: organic photovoltaics (OPVs) are embedded in film. These OPVs are a promising alternative to silicon-based solar...
