Quantum dots made promising - solar cell development-Shenzhen Power Kingdom Co., Ltd.
Flexible, cheap in cost, large size and light weight of solar cells is usually difficult to manufacture, because they are in high temperature under inert atmosphere is needed in the production process, and it is easier for a short period of time when it is exposed to the air degradation.
But at the Massachusetts institute of technology researchers have found a new method of using ultrathin quantum dot coating to make solar cells can avoid these troubles are stable at room temperature.
More important is to use the technology of solar panel with high conversion rate of 9%.
The latest study was in chemistry professor Lester Wolfe research basis, researchers will quantum dots precise evenly distributed in a layer of thin film.
Can be applied to various materials, each containing small particles in the membrane can effectively convert light energy into electrical energy alone.
Made into the battery while the technology has not been as effective standard types of solar cells, and the technology is still unable to beat the traditional solar cells in other ways, but with its 9% of light energy conversion rate, as an emerging technology in the field of solar cells has a great significant progress.
And the application prospect is very broad, completely without the traditional limitations of solar battery on conditions and temperature.
Can be applied in the field of consumer, military and aerospace products.
