With the advent of cheaper solar cells, I don't expect the price to be sigficantly lower, you still have the guys crawling all over the roof installing the things, hooking up to an inverter, all the wiring etc.....

The researchers say that one of their next steps will be to look for ways to economically mass produce its thin solar cells, but first they have to settle on a formulation. The good news is that thinner solar cells use inherently less material, so should be economical of materials, but we don't know yet the manufacturing costs until they choose a material and characterize it. They plan to experiment with different formulations, hoping to find one that is both efficient and economical to mass produce.

Exciting news about this research--I wonder if the researchers have evaluated the potential manufacturing costs for these new, thinner cells?

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
