Scientists have made a solar cell that’s light and so thin, it can happily rest on a soap bubble without popping it. The solar cells, which have been made using flexible parylene, have a much improved power-to-weight ration of 6-watts per gram, which is about 400 times greater. Imagine the potential of tiny solar cells… Read more »
