TODAYonline | Singapore | NTU to research new solar cell

SINGAPORE - Glass panels or windows in buildings could be integrated with solar panels in the near future. Currently, solar cell panels made of silicon are typically placed on top of the buildings. The new solar cells are dye-sensitized solar cells, or Graetzel cells, named after its inventor Prof Michael Gratzel, who will be heading the new Centre for Nanostructured Photosystems at Nanyang Technological University. Dr Subodh Mhaisalkar, director of the Centre for Nanostructured Photosystems at NTU, said: "Silicon solar cells are also rigid. You cannot really integrate them very easily in windows and so on. "These solar cells can be made readily on plastics. They can be used as bi-facial cells, so they can be used for transparent windows. They have different colours, so they can be used for building facades, or windows as well." The search is now for Graetzel cells which a...
