It is still important, however, to drop the costs further so that it will be possible to utilize even more solar energy.
After providing an overview of the solar cell technologies that are currently commercially available, Professor McGehee will describe a relatively new approach that could make it possible to print solar cells in roll-to-roll coating machines similar to those used to make newspapers.
Professor McGehee will show how solar cells can be made with organic semiconductors and explain how these cells work. Lecturer: Michael McGehee, Stanford University.
