Stephen Forrest, the U-M Peter A. Franken Distinguished University Professor of electrical engineering, and Xinjing Huang, a doctoral student of applied physics, discuss the development of highly efficient and semitransparent solar cells for windows. They note that it is a multistep peel-off patterning method connecting electrical interconnections between the cells. Forrest and Huang highlight the process behind creating this type of solar window, working on turning this technology into affordable applications for commercial use and more.
