University spin-off achieves solar power breakthrough

A SPINOUT company from the University of Warwick has achieved a significant breakthrough in the performance of solar photovoltaic cells.  

Molecular Solar has achieved and demonstrated a record voltage for organic photovoltaic cells that means these highly flexible, low cost solar cells can now be devolved for commercial uses in a wide range of consumer electronics.

For the first time, the company has been able to achieve 4-volt outputs from its organic PV cells. The firm’s research team believe this is...
