Organic Solar Cells More Efficiency

A research team at the New York University's Tandon School of Engineering believes that this development can make solar energy more useful in a variety of applications, such as becoming part of an electric car, becoming a wearable electronic product or stitching a synthetic backpack to charge mobile phones.
Researchers say that most organic solar cells use carbon spherical molecules called fullerenes, although they are expensive and can only absorb a limited amount of light. By using nonfullerene and a series of other materials, solar power batteries cells can absorb as much light as possible.
However, researchers say this was difficult to do in the past because it was difficult to work together at different levels of the battery. The researchers found that the use of a molecule known as a squaraine derivative as a crystallization agent enhances the absorption of layers and maximizes the potential of non-fullerene materials.
