Oxford Photovoltaics, a recent spin-off from Oxford University, has developed printable solar cells that it says can be manufactured at half the cost of current thin-film solar cells. Dye-sensitized solid organic semiconductor ink can be applied to glass or other surfaces in a variety of colors, but the firm says green is the most efficient at producing electricity.
