University Develops 'Oil and Water' Solar Cell Assembly
The University of Minnesota has been working on a method of self-assembling of small solar components that combine to make cells. The researchers plan to mesh silicon and gold on a 2 dimensional sheet by using an oil/water mix. This has resulted in needing only 3 minutes to create a 64,000-component device. The team believes that this method can lend itself to many types of electronic components.
