Affordable Printing Manufacturing for Efficient Solar Cells via @crispgreen

Polymer solar (plastic) cells are more affordable and flexible than conventional silicon solar cells. Polymer solar cells could be a major game changer for renewable technologies. The results of research conducted by scientists from the Universities of Sheffield and Cambridge suggest that cheaper and more efficient solar cells are on the horizon. The study showed that when complex mixtures of molecules in solution are spread onto a surface, like varnishing a table-top, the different molecules separate to the top and bottom of the layer in a way that maximizes the efficiency of the resulting solar cell. (Source: Physorg.com ) "Our results give important insights into how ultra-cheap solar energy panels for domestic and industrial use can be manufactured on a large scale. Rather than using complex and expensive fabrication methods to create a specific semiconductor nanostruc...
