Transparent light-harvesting polymer material for power generating windows can save your money for solar panels. Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory and Los Alamos National Laboratory managed to develop a self-assembling transparent thin film material. Using of this layer at your windows will work as solar panel and let you get quick optimum electricity for your home use.
The scientists developed this transparent material with semi-conducting polymer with combination of carbon-rich fullerenes in the shape of a soccer ball that makes a cage-like molecular structure comprising 60 carbon atoms. On application at windows this material itself will assemble and forms micron-sized hexagonal-shaped cells spanning in several millimeters area. +
