Organic Solar Cells, The Next Frontier

Goleta, California [Goleta Valley Voice] Alan Heeger, professor of physics at UCSB [University of California at Santa Barbara] and a winner of the 2000 Nobel Prize in chemistry, along with Kwanghee Lee, a professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the Gwangju Institute of Science and Technology in Korea, have discovered a method that increases the efficiency of organic (carbon-containing as opposed to silicon-based) solar cells. Their discovery, made in collaboration with other researchers here and from Korea, is in today’s issue of the journal Science.
