natural dye sensitized glass solar cells (bottom plates; experiments)
Experiments on creating a 'Golden Cloud' for/with the Agave (Maguey) using natural dye sensitized glass solar cells, using local plant pigments, salts, gelatines, carbons and used glass.

Between March x anz z 2012, a number of experiments are executed at enviroglas studio Xaquixe, 15km from Oaxaca city - between a burned down pencil factory and a newly built corn processing plant. 

The experimental architecture for the light to electrical energy conversion in glass:

 

Glass plates, cut at different sizes, from 4x2cm min to 4x6cm max. are coated with various conductive materials for acceptable results. Silver is used, with gold, or selenium a.o. Also the most known formula using tin oxide is applied.

Most (stable) conversion of light into electrical energy is observed with a triple tin oxide coating of a 5x2cm piece of basic window glass.
