Shrimp used to make solar cells

ShrimpResearchers at Queen Mary University in London have taken chemicals found in shrimp shells and generated solar cells. These chemicals are in abundance and are significantly cheaper to produce than the expensive metals which are currently used in solar panels. Unfortunately the efficiency of solar cells made by the shells is low but it could pave the way for charging battery operated tablets, phones or watches.
