Transparent solar cells for smartphone screens

This Transparent solar cell

can be used to cover windows, buildings or smartphone screens to get solar energy.


A Transparent Luminescent solar concentrator and developed by Michigan State University ‘s researchers in the US, this can be used to cover anything that has a flat panel or clear surface.

Transparent solar cell technology has been attempted it before, but the energy of cells produced was little poor and the materials they made up of were highly coloured.Is anyone will like it???

No one wants to sit behind badly coloured glass, said one of the researchers behind the technology, chemical engineer Richard Lunt, in a press release. “It makes for a very good colourful environment, like working in a pub ,disc etc. We are tring to make the luminescent active layer itself transparent.”

this new transparent solar cells are made from tiny organic molecules that absorb sunlight such as ultraviolet , infrared light. This invisble light will guided you to the edge of the solar enery panel. A thin strips of photovoltaic solar cells pick it up and converts into the energy. “Because the materials do not absorb and emit light in the visible spectrum is being used, It is transparent to the human eyek

they transparent only??????

these solar cells are also flexible. Michigan State University ‘s researchers are now working on scaling the technology up for some commercial applications such as window coverings for residential and the office buildings, smartphone and tablet screens car, windows and electronic signs.

“It makes a lot of area to deploy solar energy in a non-intrusive way,”readers say”. Can be used on the tall buildings with lots of windows or any kind of mobile device that demands high quality like a phone or e-reader.
