The largest electrostatic jet printer (ESJET) in Europe is currently being installed in the SPECIFIC cleanroom. This method of printing is able to create lines that are 1/6 width of an average human hair.
A research collaboration studying perovskite solar cells between the SPECIFIC IKC and Henan Key Laboratory of Photovoltaic Materials has been published in the Journal of Power Sources. The novel method developed represents an important step towards commercialisation of this exciting new technology.
