Potential of fullerene-based materials for utilisation of solar energy Academic Article uri icon


  • This paper reviews the prospects of fullerene-based materials for photovoltaics. Device structure and parameters of inorganic and organic fullerene-based solat cells are presented. An additional promising direction of solar energy utilisation—production of fullerenes and carbon nanotubes by concentrated sunlight—is also discussed.
