Researchers from The University of Manchester are using polystyrene particles to make the next generation of solar cells. The research shows how to use insulating polystyrene microgel particles to cut the cost and improve the stability of Perovskite Solar Cells (PSCs).


The ongoing Big Green Bang and the focus on renewable energy make this field of research unstoppable. Solar energy has been a particularly hot topic, with Tesla Solar Roof being one of the latest developments.
