Newswise: Big Improvements in Thin-film Solar Cell Efficiency Now Possible

Big Improvements in Thin-film Solar Cell Efficiency Now Possible

Penn State Materials Research Institute

Researchers at Penn State and Delaware have developed a theoretical method to improve the efficiency of thin-film solar cells by up to 33 percent. Flexible thin-film solar cells are needed to supply electrical power to fabrics, clothing, back packs and anywhere that a local autonomous power supply is required.

Newswise: An Antireflection Coating That Makes Plastic invisible

An Antireflection Coating That Makes Plastic invisible

Penn State Materials Research Institute

Antireflection (AR) coatings on plastics have a multitude of practical applications, such as reducing the glare on eyeglasses, computer monitors or on the display on your smart phone when out of doors. Now, researchers at Penn State have developed an AR coating that improves on existing coatings to the extent that it can make transparent plastics, such as Plexiglas, virtually invisible.
