Record 9.1% Efficient Solar Cell Based on Polymer and Fullerene

4 February 2012

Solar energy is one of the readily available energy source and the major problem associated with the tapping of this renewable energy is that at present it is costly than the conventional sources of energy such as coal, oil and gas. Researchers are working hard to minimize the cost by either bringing down the solar panel cost or enhancing the efficiency of the solar panels.

A lot of research is taking in the direction of organic solar cells which will not only help in making these with cost effective substrate such as plastics but will have high potential to improve the efficiency of the solar panels. The challenge with the solar cells technology or specifically the organic solar cell technology is the minimizing the overall cost of production and suitable technique so these are manufactured at industrial scale.

Polyera, has a vast experience in the area of opto-electronics and functional electronics and it has recently claimed that the leading supplier of high performance functional materials has achieved a record 9.1% efficient polymer/fullerene organic solar cells. The company claims to have achieved this using its proprietary semiconductor material Activink PV 2000. The additional feature of the newly developed technology is it’s commercial viability and the company has plan of commercialization.
