Greener, faster and cheaper way to make patterned metals for solar cells and electronics
An innovative way to pattern metals has been discovered which could make the next generation of solar panels more sustainable and cheaper.
Thanks to £1.15 M funding from the UK Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council, Dr Ross Hatton and Dr Silvia Varagnolo have discovered that silver and copper do not condense onto extremely thin films of certain highly fluorinated organic compounds when the metal is deposited by simple thermal evaporation.
