Printable/Coatable Organic Solar Cells Using Carbon Nanotubes as Charge Carriers

Organization:New Jersey Institute of Technology, NJ, US
I.P. Brief:Organic Photovoltaic (OPVs) can achieve moderate power conversion efficiencies at low cost. They can be made by high speed coating and printing of large flexible plastic substrates thus making OPVs a highly attractive alternative to current solar cells, which are fabricated from relatively expensive single crystal or amorphous silicon.
Keywords:Solar energy, carbon nanotubes, SWCNTs, SWNT, electric generation, power generation
Primary Industry:Energy
Specific Market:Solar Cell
