Cheaper, less toxic and printable solar cells

Cheaper and less toxic solar cells for solar panels are at the core of a collaborative research project conducted by RMIT, CSIRO and the Japan Science and Technology Agency.

The research will investigate the synthesis of nanocrystals and low cost, low toxicity elements such as copper and antimony, which will enable solar cells to be quickly and cheaply reproduced via printing.

The printed nanocrystal film can be fabricated on an electrode and applied to solar energy converting devices.
