UW Profs Weave Together Plan For Solar Power Textiles

Andrew and her team are currently coating different weave types and structures with a polymer that increases the fabric’s conductivity tenfold. Once fully coated, the fabric will serve as the bottom electrode, and a base layer on which to build the rest of the solar cell. Photo: Wisconsin Energy Institute
