Transparent solar cell from simple metal oxides

This post was originally published on this site

A transparent solar cell can be made using straight-forward metal oxides, according to researchers at Incheon National University in Korea. The cell converts the ultra-violet portion of the sun’s spectrum into electricity using a junction made from p-type NiO and n-type TiO2 – the latter a well-known photo-electric material. Unlike more exotic transparent solar absorbers, …
