New Leaf-Mimicking Solar Cells Using Chlorophyll-Infused Water Gel

Solar cells currently used are mostly bulky and made from silicon and other non-recyclable materials, hence they're not as green as they should be. Mimicking nature might be a solution to this problem. More exactly, North Carolina State University researchers have prototyped a water-based solar cell, mimicking the functioning of a leaf, to produce electricity.
