New polymer materials developed for better solar cells

Researchers from North Carolina State University and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology have developed new materials for more efficient polymer solar cells. The researchers found that temperature-controlled aggregation in a family of new semi-conducting polymers is the key to create flexible and lightweight organic solar cells that have a high solar efficiency and can be cheaply mass produced.NC State physicist Harald Ade and postdoctoral researcher Wei Ma had previously studied the morphology of polymer solar cells...
