Nanostructures on optical fiber produce hidden photovoltaic cells

Converting sunlight to electricity might no longer mean large panels of photovoltaic cells atop flat surfaces like roofs. uniUsing zinc oxide nanostructures grown on optical fibers and coated with dye-sensitized solar cell materials, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a new type of three-dimensional photovoltaic system. The approach could allow PV systems to be hidden from view and located away from traditional locations such as rooftops.
