Infrared Plastic Solar Cell Seminar Abstract and Report

There are some plastic solar cells that could be a possible alternative to the polycrystalline silicon, which is not efficient enough to compete with the silicon ones. The most common problem among those solar cells is their low efficiency and short life, but the researchers of the Polytechnic University of Valencia have found a new way to achieve larger efficiency while keeping them cheap. The new types of plastic solar cells are called organic photovoltaics (OPVs). In this case, they’re made of conjugated polymers, which means that their molecules have alternating single and double bonds. Unlike silicon solar cells , OPVs are flexible – they can bend or stretch without breaking because they’re not rigid like silicon ones .

Plastic solar cells are not as efficient as silicon solar cells and they are cheaper but if you want flexibility then this can be an advantage. Plastic solar panels can be made from a liquid solution which makes them more flexible then silicon ones.

The most common problem among those solar cells is their low efficiency and short life, but the researchers of the Polytechnic University of Valencia have found a new way to achieve larger efficiency while keeping them cheap.

OPVs are flexible and easy to apply on various surfaces, making them attractive for solar cells. However, the most common problem among these cells is their low efficiency and short life. The researchers at the Polytechnic University of Valencia have found a new way to achieve larger efficiency while keeping them cheap.

They created a conjugated polymer molecule that could be used as an electrode in OPV solar cells by using it as a scaffold for growing more efficient organic layers on top of it.

The new types of plastic solar cells are called organic photovoltaics (OPV). In this case, they’re made of conjugated polymers, which means that their molecules have alternating single and double bonds.

This type of structure allows the polymer to absorb a wider range of wavelengths than traditional silicon solar cells, so it’s easier to make a flexible version using cheaper materials like polyvinyl alcohol (PVA). It also gives OPV an advantage over other types because it can be printed directly onto flexible substrates like paper or plastic sheets.

Unlike silicon solar cells, OPVs are flexible. The main reason for this is that those polymers are polymerized from liquid solutions.

Unlike silicon solar cells, OPVs are flexible. The main reason for this is that those polymers are polymerized from liquid solutions. The flexibility of OPV can be attributed to its high degree of alignment with the sunlight and hence it has a higher absorption coefficient than a rigid material like glass or plastics.

OPVs have been used in many applications including:

  • Solar cell (polymer) panels on windows, roofs and walls;
  • Specialty solar cells such as organic photovoltaic materials;
  • Flexible electronics such as touch screens used in mobile phones and tablets

However, the other reason why photovoltaic cells made from polycrystalline silicon are better than these new OPVs is their efficiency – around 15%.

However, the other reason why photovoltaic cells made from polycrystalline silicon are better than these new OPVs is their efficiency – around 15%. Silicon solar cells have an efficiency of around 20%, and this makes them much cheaper to manufacture.

Researchers from the Polytechnic University of Valencia made these solar cells out of a liquid solution mixed with an infrared absorbing dye. The dye absorbs infrared light, which is then converted into electricity.

In this process, researchers used titanium dioxide (TiO2) as an active material in their solar cell; TiO2 is an important component for producing white paint and other products like paper, plastics and glass. In addition to its value as an emission source for greenhouses during daylight hours when sunlight is abundant enough to generate power using photovoltaic technology such as PV (photo voltaic), it has been used in various applications including optical filters and coatings on windows with anti-reflective properties so that they can reflect more light rather than absorb it like traditional glass does.”

Then it’s vacuum deposited on an ITO (indium tin oxide) covered glass substrate, so it can convert infrared light directly into electricity. The ITO-coated glass substrate has two electrodes and a circuit between them which allows electricity to flow through at a tiny amount of power.

The solar cell is made up of two types of photovoltaic materials: p-type silicon wafers, which absorb sunlight, and n-type silicon wafers that produce electrons when exposed to light. When both types are in contact with each other they form what’s known as a “p–n junction”. This allows them to generate electricity from infrared rays emitted by sunlight coming through your window or the air around you!
