They’re cheaper, lighter, flexible and easy to dispose – it’s little wonder that carbon nanotubes are grabbing the attention of solar cell specialists in Europe and beyond. Since they were first discovered in 1991, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) – and single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) in particular – have attracted great attention, thanks to their unique optical properties and versatility. Low-temperature processing means that CNT-based solar cells are cheaper to make compared with their silicon counterparts, and since nanotubes are mechanically...Read full article
