Liquid Solar Cells To Be Printed Almost On Anything
Researchers at USC developed technology utilizing nanochristals to produce cheap and stable solar cells that may be printed on clear surfaces or stay as liquid ink. Cadmium solenoid, a semiconductor, comprises the surface coating. A synthetic ligament has been made to stabilize nanochristals and help transmit electricity. The researchers are looking for materials other then cadmium, so that the coating is non-toxic and thus could be used on almost any surface for commercial use.
