Printing TVs as Thin as Paper, & 1st Completely Plastic Solar Cell: Filed under: Energy News

The title of the Georgia Tech news release, “Stable Electrodes for Improving Printed Electronics,” might not have caught your eye, but this is some totally cool research. Here’s more from Georgia Tech (images via Georgia Tech but placed into the piece by me) : Completely plastic solar cell and Georgia Tech researchers. Imagine owning a television with the thickness and weight of a sheet of paper. It will be possible, someday, thanks to the growing industry of printed electronics. The process, which allows manufacturers to literally print or roll materials onto surfaces to produce an electronically functional device, is already used in organic solar cells and organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) that form the displays of cellphones. Although this emerging technology is expected to grow by tens of billions of dollars over the next 10 years, one challenge is in manufacturing...
