Cheap, efficient, environmentally friendly organic solar cells could be produced

The researchers found that wet film drying in microgravity conditions allowed for greater control over the material's structure formation. This is because materials phase separate more slowly in zero gravity, allowing researchers to study changes in the material's structure more closely.

This research focuses on the molecular understanding of the polymer blend films that make up the active surface of organic solar cells. By understanding and controlling this process, researchers hope to find a simpler, more controllable way to create efficient, low-cost solar cells.

Organic solar cells have huge potential because they can be produced using low-cost materials and simple processes. In addition, organic materials generally have a lower environmental impact, so such solar cells can be more environmentally friendly. However, the current efficiency of organic solar cells is still low and requires further research and improvement.

The researchers said they will continue to study the manufacturing process of organic solar cells in depth and work hard to improve their efficiency and stability. They hope these efforts will promote the development of renewable energy and provide a cheap and efficient alternative to other energy sources.
