University of Warwick researchers develop golden window electrodes for organic photovoltaic cells

April 6th, 2011 by University of Warwick

Researchers at the University of Warwick have developed a gold plated window as the transparent electrode for organic solar cells. Contrary to what one might expect, these electrodes have the potential to be relatively cheap since the thickness of gold used is only 8 billionths of a metre. This ultra-low thickness means that even at […]
