Wearable Flexible Solar Cell Charger

  title={Wearable Flexible Solar Cell Charger},
  author={Tiffany Y. Yang},
In this paper, a design for a portable-charging Tshirt that utilizes flexible solar cells is proposed. The flexible solar cells are tested in various conditions to determine the best arrangement and design for the shirt. Different filters, circuit configurations, shade levels, angle degrees, and numbers of panels are experimented to collect data about the efficiency of the flexible panels being used. From the tests, the most efficient configuration is determined to be five 6 volts (V) panels… Expand

The role of the spray pyrolysed Al2O3 barrier layer in achieving high efficiency solar cells on flexible steel substrates
Thin film chalcopyrite solar cells grown on light-weight, flexible steel substrates are poised to enter the photovoltaic market. To guarantee good solar cell performance, the diffusion of iron fromExpand
Flexible TiO2 nanotube-based dye-sensitized solar cells using laser-drilled microhole array electrodes
Here we report on the growth of TiO2 nanotube arrays (TNAs) on Ti foil with laser-drilled microhole arrays (MHAs). The MHAs promoted the adhesion of the TNA film to Ti substrate, which is well suitedExpand
