University of Chicago researchers said, they synthesized a new polymer plastic materials may enhance the performance of solar cells at low-cost.

A professional said that the key of this technology is to improve the photoelectric conversion rate. In the past, the similar materials’ photoelectric conversion rate are 5% to 6%, and while the new material photoelectric conversion rates have increased to 8%, and also expected to improve in the future.

According to introduction, this patent has been bought by a solar power company form California.

Compared to traditional silicon solar cells, the polymer plastic solar cells have a low cost, easy to manufacture, so has the prospect of a much broader market.
