Researchers at those universities devised a new way of creating large sheets of nanotextured, silicon micro-cell arrays an important step towards the goal of said flexible, lightweight solar cells.
The researchers created the new nanotextured sheets via the utilization of a light-trapping scheme based on a nanoimprinting technique where a polymeric stamp mechanically emboss the nano-scale pattern on to the solar cell without involving further complex lithographic steps.
As per UCF assistant professor
The team considers that this tech could someday lead to solar-powered homes fueled by cells that are reliable and provide stored energy for hours without interruption.
