Latest solar cells Stories
Reportbuyer.com just published a new market research report:
Flexible thin film solar cells that can be produced by roll-to-roll manufacturing are a highly promising route to cheap solar electricity.
Organic solar cells, a new class of solar cell that mimics the natural process of plant photosynthesis, could revolutionize renewable energy - but currently lack the efficiency to compete with the more costly commercial silicon cells.
Organic solar cells that convert light to electricity using carbon-based molecules have shown promise as a versatile energy source but have not been able to match the efficiency of their silicon-based counterparts.
To understand how solar cells heal themselves, look no further than the nearest tree leaf or the back of your hand.
To boost performance, research groups have tried creating new plastic materials that enhance the flow of electricity through the solar cell.
Affordable, simple yet high-performance PLEDs and PSCs are here soon.
Stanford University scientists have created the thinnest, most efficient absorber of visible light on record.
- To swell, as grain or wood with water.
