Solar panels, green and a new source of alternative energy do seem to have a flaw after all, apparently the materials made in creating them. Apparently this refers to the materials used in creating the solar panels, usually something toxic resulting from cadmium and lead elements in manufacturing them.
But thanks to Australian and Japanese researchers, solar panels are about to get a big boost. The two teams have come together to come up with a next generation non-toxic solar panel, something that should further account for a healthier and cleaner energy source the world is in dire need of.
All this will be made possible with the aid of nanotechnology, cheaper and definitely less toxic. The teams have already confirmed the nanocrystalline film which would generate electricity under light, making it suitable as a future light absorber in solar cells.
