X-ray vision reveals how polymer solar cells wear out

(Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron DESY) Scientists from the Technical University of Munich have used the accurate X-ray vision provided by DESY's radiation source PETRA III to observe the degradation of plastic solar cells. Their study suggests an approach for improving the manufacturing process to increase the long-term stability of such organic solar cells. The team of Professor Peter Müller-Buschbaum presents its findings in this week's issue of the scientific journal Advanced Energy Materials.
