Swedish and Chinese scientists have developed organic solar cells optimized to convert ambient indoor light to electricity. The power they produce is low, but is probably enough to feed the millions of products that the internet of things will bring online. As the internet of things expands, it is expected that we will need to […]

An international team of scientists working at Berkeley Lab’s Advanced Light Source (ALS), a premier source of X-ray and ultraviolet light beams for research, found that for highly efficient polymer/organic photovoltaic cells, size matters. Organic polymer-based photovoltaic cells are far less expensive to manufacture than silicon-based solar cells.  Scientists have long believed that the key […]
