SOLAR ENERGY BREAKTHROUGH PAVES WAY FOR ELECTRICITY-GENERATING COLOURFUL WINDOWS

Researchers in South Korea have manufactured a ground-breaking form of solar cell using thin films of coloured copper. The Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI) successfully tested the cells by coating thin layers onto films of glass substrate. The researchers discovered that the innovative cells have a higher sunlight absorption rate than other non-silicon based […]
