Sandia Develops Mini-Solar Cells
Sandia National Laboratory has developed tiny photovoltaic cells. Each is about 10 times thinner than conventional cells and can be integrated into clothing, turning its wearer into a mini-charger. The glitter-sized cells are 14-20 micrometers thick which is 10 times thinner than existing 6 X 6" solar modules. The team claims that they provide better performance, have a lower cost and are more efficient than those currently used.
