Transparent solar cells at the European Researchers‘ Night 2019

Like in previous years, Martina Gerken and her group from Kiel University presented the RollFlex technology and results at the European Researchers‘ Night 2019 to a young and old science-interested audience.

In Rendsburg, children and grown-ups alike could experience, how the RollFlex solar cell foil can be integrated into the windows of our houses to generate energy.

With the LEGO house, visitors could see how solar cell foils can be integrated into our windows to generate energy.

Kids are trying out the roll-to-roll principle.

“Amazing how such a small thing can generate so much energy” (Fabian, 11 years)

Prof. Martina Gerken presents flexible solar cell foils and OLEDs from the project.

More information about the European Researchers‘ Night 2019 can be found on Kiel University’s homepage (in German).

The European Researchers‘ Night is an event supported by the EU programme Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions with participants from more than 25 European countries. The purpose of the event is to bring researchers closer to the public in general and specifically to young people to show how their science has an impact on our daily lives.
