The team of scientists at the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology in South Korea has achieved a breakthrough in the solar cell technology. They successfully developed solar cells so thin enough that, they can be bent around an average writing pencil.
Researchers from Linköping University of Sweden and the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) of China have overcome this by continuous research. These two research groups will be presenting their results in the high-profile journal Advanced Materials. The efficiency of polymer solar cells with fullerenes in converting the sun’s energy is approximately 11% and is considered to be good.
Solar energy remains one of the most used forms of renewable energy. However, it is generally not the only option used when creating power. This is because solar cells are limited in the amount of power created. No matter how bright the sunlight or how many hours of continual sunlight, the solar power cells create […]
Solar Power Plants are growing across the globe at an alarming rate, and every year more and more land is being utilised for the establishment and development of solar panels. The question that arises is, do they have any adverse effects on the environment? The answer is yes, however small they may be, they do […]
