NTU could test new type of solar cells in China

SINGAPORE - The Nanyang Technological University (NTU) is exploring the possibility of testbedding a new type of solar cells with Singbridge in Guangzhou Knowledge City in China. NTU Deputy President and Provost, Professor Freddy Boey, told MediaCorp that NTU also has an offer in China to testbed a new system of dye-sensitised solar cell, at the launch of the S$3 million Centre for Nanostructured Photosystems yesterday. Also known as Graetzel cells after its Swiss inventor Professor Michael Graetzel - who will be leading the new centre - the solar cell mimics the ability of plants to capture photons of light and turn them into electricity. Graetzel cells use special dyes to capture the energy in light at different wavelengths, like the chlorophyll in plants. This technology enables Graetzel solar cells to capture weaker sunlight as compared to the conventional silicon sola...
