Caption: Organic photovoltaic cell testing. Glovebox handling area being used by technicians for artificial ageing tests on organic photovoltaic cells. Light is shone on the photovoltaic cells to simulate normal operating conditions, to see how long they will last for. The results are being analysed at left. To accelerate the testing, the cells are maintained at a higher temperature to increase the ageing process by a factor of four. Organic photovoltaic cells use conductive organic polymers or small organic molecules instead of the usual silicon semiconductor material. Like all photovoltaic cells, they absorb energy from sunlight and convert it into an electrical current.
