Solar to Keep Army on the Go

Abstract:
The Army's long-term vision is to have solar panels that can be camouflaged into tents or even uniforms, Hampel said. Her group is working with Konarka Technologies to develop nanotechnology-based solar panels that can be woven directly into fabric. Konarka's technology replaces silicon with dye polymer plastics that transform any kind of light into electrical energy.
