Nanotube film may resolve longevity problem of solar cells

Nanotube film may resolve longevity problem of solar cells
Now researchers from Aalto University, Uppsala University and École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) in Switzerland have managed to improve the long term stability of solar cells made of perovskite using "random network" nanotube films developed under the leadership of Professor Esko Kauppinen at Aalto University. Random network nanotube films are films composed of single-walled carbon nanotubes that in an electron microscope image look like spaghetti on a plate.

Pictures or texts could be inkjet-printed as solar cells

Pictures or texts could be inkjet-printed as solar cells
Solar cells have been manufactured already for a long from inexpensive materials with different printing techniques. Especially organic solar cells and dye-sensitised solar cells are suitable for printing. "We wanted to take the idea of printed solar cells even further, and see if their materials could be inkjet-printed as pictures and text like traditional printing inks," says University Lecturer Janne Halme.
