Printed electronics revolutionize traditional manufacturing processes by using printing techniques to fabricate electronic devices, including innovative solar cells like perovskite and organic variants. Perovskite solar cells are crafted using a special class of materials called perovskites, which possess excellent light-absorbing properties. These cells can be created through printing methods like inkjet printing or slot-die coating, allowing for the deposition of perovskite materials onto flexible or rigid substrates in a cost-effective manner. Perovskite solar cells offer high efficiency and potential for low-cost production, making them promising candidates for next-generation solar technology due to their ability to convert sunlight into electricity efficiently.
Organic solar cells utilize organic (carbon-based) materials to generate electricity from sunlight. They are fabricated through printing techniques like roll-to-roll printing or screen printing, enabling the deposition of organic semiconductors onto flexible substrates. Organic solar cells are lightweight, flexible, and semi-transparent, allowing for applications in various settings, including building-integrated photovoltaics and wearable electronics. While currently less efficient than traditional silicon solar cells, ongoing research aims to enhance their performance and stability, promoting their use as a sustainable and versatile energy solution.
