Organic photovoltaic cells ideal for low-power portable electronics

October 12th, 2012 by University of Warwick

A new breakthrough in solar technology means portable electronic devices such as e-book readers could soon be re-charged on the move in low light levels and partial shading. University of Warwick scientists, in collaboration with spin-out company Molecular Solar, have created an organic solar cell that generates a sufficiently high voltage to recharge a lithium-ion […]

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 […]
