'More durable and less expensive' solar cell developed.

Washington, Sept 8 (ANI): Scientists have developed highly efficient electrolyte system for solar cells that can convert sunlight into electricity and retain it for longer period.

Scientists from the University of Picardie Jules Verne and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology revealed that the research was aimed at developing an improved version of a highly promising solar cell that is less expensive than conventional solar cells and made of the semi-conductor material, silicon.

Frederic Sauvage, Michael Graetzel and colleagues said that these so-called dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs), or Graetzel cells are more durable and suitable for roll-up applications such as window shades.

The study appears in Journal of the American Chemical Society. (ANI)
