Tiny structure gives big boost to solar power – Princeton Engineering

Tiny structure gives big boost to solar power – Princeton Engineering | Sustainable Technology & Biomimicry | Scoop.it
Princeton researchers have found a simple and economical way to nearly triple the efficiency of organic solar cells, the cheap and flexible plastic devices that many scientists believe could be the future of solar power.
The researchers, led by electrical engineer Stephen Chou, were able to increase the efficiency of the solar cells 175 percent by using a nanostructured "sandwich" of metal and plastic that collects and traps light.
