Plastic Solar Cells

submitted by: icamp2012school
Public Lecture by Kees Hummelen, University of Groningen, the Netherlands. Organic photovoltaics aka “plastic solar cells” are derived from carbon based molecules, making them inexpensive to fabricate and very lightweight. However, historically, their power conversion efficiency has been well below the established technology based on silicon. Researchers in the field can now foresee pathways to change this and thereby provide a breakthrough technology for lowcost solar energy. Come and...
