Bar-Ilan Scientist Invents Cheaper Way to Produce Electricity

[The Jerusalem Post] A Bar-Ilan nanotechnology expert has invented a photovoltaic cell—which produces electricity from the sun’s rays—that could be dramatically cheaper to produce. A Bar-Ilan professor’s invention may revolutionize the use of solar energy. The cells, which are composed of metallic wires mounted on conductive glass, can form the basis of solar cells that produce electricity with efficiency similar to that of conventional, silicon-based cells while being much cheaper to produce, says Prof. Arie Zaban, head of BIU’s nanotechnology institute, who has just patented the technology.
