Sticky tape and phosphorus the key to ultrathin solar cells
Canberra, Australia (SPX) Jul 21, 2015
Scientists studying thin layers of phosphorus have found surprising properties that could open the door to ultrathin and ultralight solar cells and LEDs. The team used sticky tape to create single-atom thick layers, termed phosphorene, in the same simple way as the Nobel-prize winning discovery of graphene. Unlike graphene, phosphorene is a semiconductor, like silicon, which is the basis of current electronics technology. "Because phosphorene is so thin and light, it creates possibilities fo ... read more
