Printed coatings enable more efficient solar cells
Printed coatings enable more efficient solar cells
Researchers at Cambridge, Imperial and Singapore have developed a method to print ultrathin coatings on next-generation solar cells, allowing them to work in tandem with silicon solar cells to boost efficiencies. Photovoltaics, or solar cells, work by absorbing sunlight to produce clean electricity. But photovoltaics can absorb only a fraction of the solar spectrum, which limits their efficiencies.

Making plastic more transparent while also adding electrical conductivity
Making plastic more transparent while also adding electrical conductivity
Share on: Share on Twitter Share on Facebook Share on LinkedIn In an effort to improve large touchscreens, LED light panels and window-mounted infrared solar cells, researchers at the University of Michigan have made plastic conductive while also making it more transparent. They provide a recipe to help other researchers find the best balance between conductivity and transparency by creating a three-layer anti-reflection surface.
