Martin Helgesen’s research focuses on the creation of polymers which are suitable for large-scale fabrication of polymer solar cells. His work may ultimately pave the way for large-scale industrial roll-to-roll production of polymer solar cells by means of standard printing technology. Mass production of polymer solar cells will significantly reduce production costs and ensure sufficient quantities of solar cells for grid-size energy production.
