October 29, 2012 - Stanford Professor Zhenan Bao and her colleagues have developed the first solar cell made entirely of carbon, a promising alternative to the expensive materials used in photovoltaic devices today. Unlike rigid silicon solar panels that adorn many rooftops, Stanford's thin film prototype is made of carbon materials that can be coated from solution - a technique that has the potential to reduce manufacturing costs.
