Plants Inspire New Generation Of Solar Cells

ScienceDaily (Mar. 3, 2009) — The ability of plants to turn sunlight into energy through photosynthesis has been successfully mimicked by scientists at the University of Southampton to produce a new generation of solar cells.

The Southampton team led by Professor Pavlos Lagoudakis of the University's School of Physics and Astronomy, has developed a new range of photovoltaic devices that use a process found in vegetative methods of light harvesting, to deliver unprecedented amounts of electrical current from light.
