MIT researchers design solar panels the thickness of a sheet of paper

MIT cites two examples of applications. First, we could attach these mini-cells to the sail of a boat to supply it with electricity. They are flexible and light at this point. Another example, these large tents often deployed by relief workers after an earthquake, floods or in a refugee camp. Here too, we can place these sheets – rather than too heavy panels – on the tent canvas and provide energy in a devastated area, without necessarily having to resort to bulky, expensive and polluting generators. Also imagine these cells on a drone which would gain autonomy here.
