MIT researchers demonstrates thinnest, lightest solar cells ever produced

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have demonstrated thinnest, flexible, and lightweight solar cell ever produced. The team used parylene flexible polymer as substrate and overcoating, and an organic material called DBP as the primary light-absorbing layer. Parylene is used to protect implanted biomedical devices and printed circuit boards from environmental damage. Researches note […]
