Thanks to Kansas, we might be painting solar panels on our walls.

Breakdown:

  • We currently can paint or print solar panels using organic semiconductors, but they have very low preformance.
  • Hio Zhao Wai-Lun Chan from the University of Kansas are developing more efficent organic semiconductors.
  • Adding a layer of molybdenum disulfide allows more free electrons exsist, increasing the ability to produce electricity.

Wow, there’s a lot of science here. Bottom line, we’re getting closer to a real-world application for paint-on solar panels. Go Kansas!
