Graphite/Graphene Solar Cell Developed

Photovoltaic Solar Cells Inc announced that it has created a dye doped Graphite/Graphene only solar cell. This solar cell will be produced using a production tool that the company is building. This equipment can produce either a solar cell or a solar strip that can be used as a roofing tile.

According to Photovoltaic Solar Cells Inc, the solar cell is inexpensive, environmentally friendly, reliable, flexible and durable enough that it can be walked on.

Over the past 12 years, the company has worked with dye doped TiO2, CIGS materials, CdTe CdS materials, a-Si materials, Si materials and a Si Graphite/Graphene blend. It now has created the first dye doped Graphite/Graphene Solar Cell.

The company says that it has applied for and has been awarded over 30 patents in various areas of Photovoltaics.
