GWANGJU, South Korea, Aug. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Organic solar cells (OSCs), which make use of organic materials to convert sunlight into electricity, are an attractive candidate for future photovoltaics. This is due to several of their desirable features, such as their light weight, flexibility, malleability, and, most importantly, high power conversion efficiency (PCE). Such qualities make them ideal for a wide range of applications.

Key Points: 
  • GWANGJU, South Korea, Aug. 17, 2022 /PRNewswire/ --Organic solar cells (OSCs), which make use of organic materials to convert sunlight into electricity, are an attractive candidate for future photovoltaics.
  • Most OSCs are produced using a technique called "spin coating," which allows for high PCEs but makes for poor scalability.
  • This is where Dr. Hongkyu Kang and Prof. Kwanghee Lee from the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology (GIST) in Korea come in.
  • This makes it easier to use ZnO for manufacturing organic solar cells and developing a printing technology for large-area solar cell technology,"says Dr. Kang.
