Printed Electronics

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.
