Korean Scientists Create ‘Invisible Solar Panels’ For Smartphones
Korean scientists from Incheon National University invented a transparent solar cell earlier this year, the research was then published in the Journal of Power Resources. It was revealed in the research that the solar cells are heterojunction, especially the cell’s crystalline: a thin film that is responsible for absorbing light. The solar panel will then convert the light into electricity which is similar to normal solar panels.
Another plus point to this solar panel is that it’s non-toxic and environmental friendly! Professor JoonDoong Kim, in charge of this research, believes that the solar panel can soon be accessible to the public. This new technology can soon be integrated into windows, buildings, and smartphones in the near future!
