We will be starting experimenting our solar cells again. We will be using the same nano-crystalline dye-sensitized solar cell type. This year we will be concentrating on finding out if the concentration of anthocyanin has an affect with the energy output of our solar cells. The status of our experiment right now lies on creating the solar cells and getting them ready for experimentation with various dyes.
Enjoy the picture below of a process called annealing:
Our first trial of experimenting the concentration of anthocyanin is complete.
We have 3 different solar cells. Each received either 1 coat, 3 coats, or 5 coats of anthocyanin. Feel free to watch the videos of the different cells made, and a solar cell working at it's best.
