Peel-and-Stick solar panels from Stanford engineering
Stanford CA (SPX) Dec 24, 2012
For all their promise, solar cells have frustrated scientists in one crucial regard - most are rigid. They must be deployed in stiff, often heavy, fixed panels, limiting their applications. So researchers have been trying to get photovoltaics to loosen up. The ideal: flexible, decal-like solar panels that can be peeled off like band-aids and stuck to virtually any surface, from papers to window panes. Now the ideal is real. Stanford researchers have succeeded in developing the world's first peel-a ... read more
