Transparent solar cells

Scientists from the University of California and the US Department of Energy have developed a new solar cell made from a polymer that allows for 66 per cent light to pass through it to the human eye, making it translucent. This significant development may allow for building windows, glass and even screens on smart phones to generate electricity by the collection of infrared light.

The technology involves an important top layer which is an electrode that is built by spraying a network of silver nanowires onto a layer of titanium dioxide. It is said that if successful, polymer solar cells would be cheaper than the current silicon solar cell technology that is available in the market, however conversion efficiency is at 10 per cent, compared to silicon solar cells which are at around 40 per cent.
