Solar cells as thin as paper by MIT researchers

The researchers at MIT have managed to compress the solar cells to their thinnest possible size. They have created solar cells, which can be stuck on sheets of paper. It could create an avenue for revolutionary use of this green technology in the ever-sleek, tiny devices. The MIT geniuses worked on the process that required coating the piece of paper with organic semiconductor material. Though, it’s commendable to have attained such small sized solar panels, but they’re barely 2 % efficient, as compared to the commercial panels, which can be over 20 % efficient. Hopefully, over the years, if the development goes well, we might see tiny solar cells being used in almost everything under the sun.
