Capturing solar light at UV-Visible by organic photovoltaic (polymer based solar cell) at efficiencies of 10-30% is an ideal that is crucial to alternative energy. This type of solar cell would be cheaper, lightweight, flexible, durable, etc as compared to commonly used silicon based solar cells that are expensive, fragile, heavy, etc.
There is a new edition of Journal Nanotechnology Progress International (JONPI) out. The crucial area of nanoenergy was discussed among other cutting edge articles:
"Capturing solar light at UV-Visible by organic photovoltaic (polymer based solar cell) at efficiencies of 10-30% is an ideal that is crucial to alternative energy. This type of solar cell would be cheaper, lightweight, flexible, durable, etc as compared to commonly used silicon based solar cells that are expensive, fragile, heavy, etc. The subject of this editorial review is to discuss architectures that can create such efficiencies thereby reducing the cost of energy to about 2 cent per watts instead of $4-$5 per watt by silicon solar cell compared to $1 from fossil.
Keyword: Alternative energy, organic photovoltaics (OPV), solar cell, architectures"
(Onah Ejembi, J.Nanotech. Prog. Int.(JONPI) 2010 abstract)
There is a special report on nano progress in Asia. JONPI is regarded as the #1 nano journal in scope and coverage with 5 Nobel Laureates as editors among others. JONPI is part of FONAI-US-EU-Africa-Asia-Pacific and Caribbean Nanotechnology Initiative (USEACANI) to raise public consciousness on this crucial field.
