A PhD student in Australia has found a cheap way to make solar cells with household parts. If this process works as well as thought-of, we might have solar cells popping up everywhere with DIYers who make their own solar cells.
An Australian PhD student has found a cheap way to make solar cells with nail polish, a pizza oven and an ink jet printer. 23-year-old Nicole Kuepper’s invention, named iJET, doesn’t require the pricey clean rooms and high-temperature ovens of traditional solar panel manufacturing plants, thus dramatically lowering the cost of solar and paving the road for introducing the technology to third-world countries.
