Novel solar film to help smartphones and cars harvest energy from sun

Washington, August 1 : Researchers have developed a solar film, which could help turn smartphone and car into solar-powered devices.

The device is created out of two thin polymer solar cells that collect rays from the sun and turn it into energy.

Head researcher Yang Yang said that the team is hoping that the device will offer new directions for solar cells, including the creation of solar windows on homes and office buildings, Fox News reported.

He said that using two solar cells with the new interfacial materials in between produces close to two times the energy that the team had originally observed.
