Light trapping in semi-transparent solar cells in Nature Photonics

High power conversion of new solar cells that are thin, flexible, and transparent make them ideal for a wealth of new applications.

In a recent study carried out in the group led by Prof. Jordi Martorell and published in Nature Photonics, researchers have fabricated semi-transparent Organic Photovoltaic (OPV) cells utilizing a light-trapping layered architecture to obtain an optimal light harvesting.
