Title: Making a Solid State Organic Photovoltaic Cell More Efficient and Economically Beneficial

While solar power offers an attractive alternative to fossil fuels, the technology is expensive for people to use. Solar cells made from organic elements such as carbon, oxygen and nitrogen are cheaper than traditional cells made from silicon. Students from East Central University are optimizing an organic solar cell to improve stability, lower cost and increase efficiency.
