Meet the Ultra-thin photovoltaics that are flexible enough to wrap around a pencil

Researchers in South Korea have developed flexible photovoltaic that could power wearable electronics like fitness trackers, smartwatches and smart glasses in future. The ultra-thin photovoltaics are flexible enough to wrap around the average pencil. The researchers have presented the report results in the journal Applied Physics Letters, from AIP Publishing.  “Our photovoltaic is about 1 […]

Solar Cell Efficiency Questions Finally Finds an Answer

The enigmatic material – spiro-OMeTAD has been cloak-and-dagger for around two decades. Despite research efforts, its utility of this material has constrained till hole-transporting material in perovskite and dye-sensitized solar cells.  But latest study has resurrected the potential of spiro-OMeTAD determining the future of solar cells. This time, a team have grown single crys tals […]

Xerox working on digital printing process for mass production of solar photovoltaic systems

Xerox’s R&D-focused subsidiary PARC is developing a new digital printing process for mass-production of cheaper concentrated photovoltaic systems. These systems are expected to increase efficiency of solar cells by using lens, which can distillate sunlight on small cells. Price of solar module has already dropped sharply in the past, but increase in efficiency may cut […]
