Nanotech Solar Cells, in Camouflage Colors

Abstract:
A year from now, U.S. soldiers may go into the field with a thin sheet of flexible plastic, packed into the size of a road map and attached to their combat vests. They would unfold the plastic to let the sun recharge the batteries powering their walkie-talkies, night optical gear, and other electronics. The plastic, which the Army expects to test this year, would be coated with solar cells created by Konarka Technologies Inc., in Lowell, Massachusetts.
