Bacteria-printed biophotovoltaics solar cells produce electricity during both day and night

Credit: Imperial College London. British researchers achieved a breakthrough in biophotovoltaics (BPV) by printing electronic circuits and bacteria at the same time. The biological solar panel produce electricity both day and night, unlike conventional photovoltaic cells that are entirely reliant on sunshine. The whole device is biodegradable, making it ideal for a disposable solar cell or…
