I get a newsletter about research at Oxford from Isis Innovation here
The Oxford Invention
Researchers in Oxford have developed a new 2nd generation thin film inorganic solar cell system that performs in the visible spectrum of light, and is not composed of finite rare earth materials, or as toxic components as the current inorganic systems.
The advantages of this system include:
Low cost per watt compared to existing solar energy technologies
Good photochemical stability relative to other low cost organic systems
Compatibility with existing industrial coating methods
Aesthetic advantages such as transparency and colouring
This work is the subject of patent application, and Isis would like to talk to companies interested in the commercial scale up and processing development of this technology.
