One drawback with solar cells is that flat, pitch-black panels have only limited aesthetic appeal and limits their application, but a team of researchers at Aalto University have come up with an inexpensive inkjet-printed solar cell that can be made into text or images. Designed to be used with low-power devices, it has already shown performance and durability comparable to that of existing organic dye solar cells.
