Flexible solar cells advance "mobile power"

Abstract:
Deborah Byrd and Joel Block: Scientists recently announced the development of solar cells they say are flexible -- and twice as efficient as solar cells of the past. Researchers developed the flexible solar cell at the Center for Nanotechnology at Wake Forest University in North Carolina. David Carroll is director there, and he told us the new solar cell is made of a high-tech plastic.
