    Solar cell technology has seen little innovation since the inceptive crystalline silicon solar cell. While crystalline silicon solar cells offer stable and high efficiencies (~24% out of a theoretical 33.7% maximum1), their manufacturing process is expensive and environmentally detrimental. Over the past decade, photovoltaic and optoelectronic materials based on organic molecules have gained popularity. These cells promise to be low-cost, flexible, environmentally friendly, and functionalizable.2,3 However, due to the increased complexity of the electron-donor systems owed to discrete molecular orbitals, the efficiencies of such cells are generally much lower. The prototypical organic photovoltaic cell has a bulk heterojunction design, sporting an active layer made of a donor-acceptor blend of polymers.4 To ensure effective charge percolation, the structure of n-doped and p-doped molecules must provide continuous pathways while intermingling on a 10 nm scale to allow exciton decoupling. Irregular quasi-crystalline…

    Solar Energy Energy is considered as the most important issue of the 21st century. About 85% of today’s modern world use of energy comes from fossil fuels (Blah Blah). These particular resources, fossil fuels, are finite in quantity, and has been a major cause of air pollution and global warming. Scientists are finding alternative sources of energy to solve the century’s puzzle, a resource which is renewable, natural and efficient such as solar energy. Over 2700 years ago, people have been…

    helped the team to get a better grasp on what conditions affect solar panels and which ones are able to work best and most efficient. With the rise of popularity and technology of solar panels it’s important to understand which conditions affect the efficiency of the solar panel. The conditions tested on the solar panel were various applied resistances, power output between a flat solar panel and “fisheye” solar panel, incident light angle,and efficiency of each solar panel. The maximum power…
