By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Technology -- Investigators publish new report on Advanced Material Research. According to news reporting from Wuhan, People's Republic of China, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) will be a promising device to solve the energy crisis and environment issues due to its low-cost, eco-friendly properties and relatively high light-to-electricity conversion efficiency."
The news correspondents obtained a quote from the research from Wuhan University, "Comparing to traditional DSSCs on rigid glass substrates, light-weight DSSCs on flexible substrates significantly broaden the application areas of the devices which are much desirable for commercialization and industry. This review tries to summarize in depth the recent efforts on flexible DSSCs, especially the fabrication techniques of both photoanodes and counter electrodes on conductive plastic, metal and fiber-shaped substrates, and also emphasized the nanomaterials with novel structures and morphologies used for flexible DSSCs."
According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The properties are expected to be of use to readers from various disciplines."
