ICE 98-001 - Nanocrystalline Dye-Sensitized Solar Cell Kit


This kit is not manufactured, sold or distributed by Sol Ideas or Greg Smestad, Ph.D. Read below to learn how to purchase it from ICE.


Greg P. Smestad, Ph.D. developed a prototype nanocrystalline dye sensitized solar cell kit in 1998, using dyes from plants. This kit can provide an interdisciplinary context for students learning the basic principles of biological extraction, chemistry, physics, environmental science and nanotechnology. The result of the procedure is a solar cell that lasts no longer than a few months, so it is a teaching tool and not a practical photovoltaic module. It should be noted that the kit and its associated procedures are not to be used without the help and guidance of an adult who understands basic chemical safety practices.

  • Model: ICE No. 98-001
