NYU research team borrows lessons from nature to build a better organic solar cell

By Kathie Zipp Solar cells have great potential as a source of clean electrical energy, but so far they have not been cheap, light, and flexible enough for widespread use. A team of researchers led by Tandon Associate Professor André D. Taylor of the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department has found an innovative and promising way to improve solar cells and make their use in many applications more likely.
The research team led by André Taylor, working with the active layer of an organic solar cell, achieved remarkable efficiency by introducing a squarine molecule (ASSQ) as a crystallizing agent, which both donates electrons and
