Paint-On Solar Cells

And if the world of sustainable energy weren’t artistic enough, researchers at New Jersey Institute of Technology, claim to have developed a way to create a solar cell that can be painted on flexible plastic sheets.

Someday homeowners will even be able to print sheets of these solar cells with inexpensive home-based inkjet printers. Consumers can then slap the finished product on a wall, roof or billboard to create their own power stations. -Somenath Mitra, Director
