Labwork: Cellulose Solar Paper

Designed and fabricated in partnership with Korgel Laboratories, "Cellulose Solar Paper" is a radical new way to envision solar panel design. The design for the modern silicon solar panel comes in large part from architectural design cues.  This project begins with a premise of re-imagining solar technology from design principles taken from nature and plant life.  The steps pictured here show progress on making the first working solar device on an organic substrate: microbial nano-cellulose.
