Comments Off on Cutting Edge Technology Uses Tin to Replace Lead in New Breed of Solar Cells

Researchers at Northwestern University have developed a novel solar cell that promises to not only reduce the cost of manufacturing, but take more harmful elements out of production. Inorganic chemist Mercouri G. Kanatzidis and Robert P. H. Chang collaborated to create a PV cell that uses a perovskite crystal structure. Their invention replaces harmful lead present in other cells of the same family with tin, a less expensive and potentially more environmentally friendly material.
