Abstract

Michael Kamel successfully synthesized transfer-free graphene electrodes and encapsulation layers using geranium oil as a precursor for organic solar cells. The graphene electrodes exhibited performance comparable to standard electrodes, while the encapsulation layers enhanced device stability. His research contributes to the advancement of affordable, eco-friendly renewable energy technology.
