Researchers involved in the €10.6 million European research project called GRAFOL have reportedly demonstrated a cost-effective roll-to-roll production tool capable of making large sheets of graphene on an industrial scale, which could greatly contribute to flexible thin-film solar cells with transparent electrodes like perovskite PVs.

The project team also believes that this process could be used to establish graphene as a substitute for transparent indium tin oxide (ITO) electrodes used in organic LEDs (OLEDs), enabling flexible designs while helping reduce dependency on ITO.

Major companies were involved in this project, like Aixtron, Intel, Philips, Thales and more, which also aim to take the project results to the next level by introducing new products in the market.
