• Retrofitting facades and solar panels easily with ultra-thin glass

    12 days ago - By Phys.org

    Cleaning glass facades and solar installations is expensive and time-consuming. Dirt reduces the yield of solar modules. However, the Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology has now succeeded in applying crystalline titanium oxide to ultra-thin glass using a roll-to-roll process, thus achieving hydrophobic surfaces that become superhydrophilic under UV light.
