Organic solar cells
Organic solar cells are a third-generation photovoltaic technology using organic materials to harvest energy from light, outdoor as well as indoor. The solar cells are comprised of several layers including a photo-active layer and two electrode layers. These layers are printed using roll-to-roll manufacturing, similar to the way newspapers are printed, with thicknesses on the nanometer scale. These layers are typically printed on a thin plastic substrate followed by lamination with a protective and flexible foil.
At infinityPV in-house development of organic materials allows tuneable cell chemistry. The materials are designed to absorb specific wavelengths of light allowing bold colors or highly efficient solar cells. The highly optimized organic materials enable solar cells to be made with ultra thin absorber layers with thicknesses in the nanometer scale. We offer workshops on printed solar cells and you can find more information in our learn section.
