A revolutionary innovation in solar technology was recently announced by researchers at the University of Toronto. Illan Kramer and a team of researchers at the university are working on portable solar generators that can be transported in a spray can and then sprayed anywhere where power is needed.
“My dream is that one day you’ll have two technicians with Ghostbusters backpacks come to your house and spray your roof,” Kramer said in a recent press release.
The new innovation is called “sprayLD”, a name which is derived from the process of ” atomic layer deposition” that makes the whole thing possible.
“This is something you can build in a Junkyard Wars fashion, which is basically how we did it. We think of this as a no-compromise solution for shifting from batch processing to roll-to-roll,” Kramer said.
Kramer’s supervisor, Professor Ted Sargent believes that this could truly revolutionize the solar industry.
“As quantum dot solar technology advances rapidly in performance, it’s important to determine how to scale them and make this new class of solar technologies manufacturable. We were thrilled when this attractively manufacturable spray-coating process also led to superior performance devices showing improved control and purity,” Kramer said.
