Organic Photovoltaics: An Alternative to Silicon Solar

Researchers in the Applied Nanotechnology groups at QUT are developing low cost alternative photovoltaics, constructed from a thin film of a cheap composite material, a mixture of carbon nanotubes and conductive polymer. The goal is power production with zero greenhouse gas emission by direct photovoltaic conversion of sunlight into electricity. Silicon solar cells are more commercially mature, but high production costs still limits their commercial viability.
