Researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have developed a new technique for organic semiconductor films that is simpler than current solutions. The new technique may reduce costs of polymer solar cells, making them a more viable option for wearable devices. The process induces p-type electrical doping for the films by immersion in a room-temperature solution, and would replace the current complex solution which includes vacuum processing. The work was recently published in Nature Materials.
