New Solar Cell Easy As Pizza To Make

A former member
Post #: 27
"The iJET is a new type of solar cell that's cheap and easy to make, requiring not much more than a pizza oven, some nail polish remover, and a common inkjet printer. Australian scientist Nicole Kuepper describes her invention."

An ink jet printer, nail polish, nail polish remover, and a pizza oven? (They left out the part about still needing a silicon wafer.)

Sounds like one of the stories from Crocodile Dundee given to wide-eyed tourists.

However it seems real and they say it might cut the current prices in half. So $500 for 200W?

Despite the huge price drops I fully expect to see over the years it is incredibly cost beneficial with or without tax subsidies at the current prices to go pv if you have the land for it...
