Spray on Solar Uses Buckyballs

Somenath Mitra, PhD of the New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) has developed an inexpensive solar material that can be sprayed on surfaces or printed on purchase levitra plastic with an ink jet printer. â€œThe process is simple,” said Mitra, “Someday homeowners will even be able to online viagra order print sheets of these solar cells with inexpensive home-based inkjet printers. Consumers can then slap the finished product on a wall, roof or billboard to create their own power stations.” Well...if he says so! Though I don't want to think about how much an ink cartridge of fullerene is going to cost us.

Mitra’s invention, a “Fullerene single wall carbon nanotube complex for polymer bulk heterojunction photovoltaic cells,” is featured as the June 21, 2007 cover story of cheap 25mg viagra the Journal of Materials Chemistry published by the Royal Society of Chemistry.

“Developing organic solar cells from polymers, however, is a cheap and viagra samples potentially simpler alternative” to silicon cells, said Mitra.

We foresee a great deal of interest in our work because solar cells can be inexpensively printed or simply painted on exterior building walls and/or roof tops. Imagine some day driving in your hybrid car with a solar panel painted on the http://www.eastgreenbushlibrary.org/inexpensive-cialis roof, which is producing electricity to drive the engine. The opportunities are endless.
The solar cell developed at NJIT uses a carbon nanotube complex.  Nanotubes can conduct current better than any conventional electrical wire. “Actually, nanotubes are significantly better conductors than copper,” Mitra added. 

 

Mitra and his research team took the carbon nanotubes and combined them with tiny carbon Buckyballs (known as fullerenes) to form snake-like structures. Buckyballs trap electrons, although they can’t make electrons flow. Add sunlight to excite the polymers, and the buckyballs will grab the electrons. Nanotubes, behaving like copper wires, will then be able to make the electrons or current flow.

“Using this unique combination in an organic solar cell recipe can enhance the cost levitra lowest efficiency of future painted-on solar cells,” said Mitra. â€œSomeday, I hope to see this process become an inexpensive energy alternative for households around the world.”

NanoSolar?

This sounds a lot like NanoSolar. Not sure if they are related or competting technologies.

This is not Mitra’ invention! Mitra has spent countless hours and gobs of other peoples’ money realizing a pre-existing patented novel invention belonging to another inventor. smilies/angry.gif

The picture you have with all of them in one shot looks like an image from an electron microscope. So awesome!
