What is an Organic Solar Cells

Image
An Organic Solar cell or a Plastic Solar Cell  is a type of  Photovoltic that uses organic electronics and it's a branch of electronic that deals with conductive  organic polymers or small organic molecules for light absorption and charge transport to produce electricity from sunlight by photovoltaic effect.

Manufacturers have been using silicon to make solar panels because the material used was most efficient in converting sunlight into electricity. But organic photovoltaics are made from carbon and plastic and it's promising to be a cheaper way of generating electricity. This new research shows that organics can be as efficient as silicon.



As of 2015, over 10% of polymers of solar was archived over the efficiency via a tandem structure. In 2018, 17.3% of organic photovoltaics was reached via tandem structure which broke an efficient record.





Well, organic cells are very strong absorbents of light being able to show harness larger amount of sunlight than any other solar cells…
