§ Proposes to determine the feasibility of using the combination of inkjet and screen-printing technologies to fabricate low cost organic solar cells. .
§ An all printed organic solar cell having efficiency greater than 4% will be fabricated and tested as part of the project.
§ Addresses the need for low cost, flexible thin film solar cells with higher efficiency that would open up additional market applications for PV power generation.
§ Potential to reduce the cost per kWh from organ solar cell systems by using low cost fabrication technologies.
