Flexible Photovoltaics

We print photovoltaic inks on simple plastic foils in any shape or color. The resulting modules are flexible and extremely lightweight (few hundred grams per square meter). Initially developed and optimized for converting sunlight into electricity, we soon found out that our technology is actually very effective also for indoor applications, where it is the best energy-harvesting option. For example, our chargers, easily customizable to be integrated in any type of device, provide energy for networks of thousands of sensors and electronic devices, enabling the real Internet of Things.
