Breakthrough material could lead to cheaper, more widespread solar panels and electronics

Imagine printing electronic devices using a simple inkjet printer—or even painting a solar panel onto the wall of a building.  Such technology would slash the cost of manufacturing electronic devices and enable new ways to integrate them into our everyday lives. Over the last two decades, a type of material called organic semiconductors, made out of molecules or polymers, has been developed for such purposes. But some properties of these materials pose a major hurdle that limits their widespread use.  Read more....
