MIT Team Prints Solar Cells on Cloth and PET

Researchers at MIT have printed solar cells on cloth and even thin PET (basically plastic bottles). To create an array of photovoltaic cells on the paper, five layers of material need to be deposited onto the same sheet of paper in successive passes, using a mask made of paper to form the patterns of cells on the surface. This takes place in a vacuum chamber, and is similar to the process used to make the silvery lining in a bag of chips
