About

With the spread of the Internet-of-Things, new problems arise for the industrialists like battery limit, devices lifetime, and cost of use related to the time and effort required for the implementation. LAYER® is efficient to answer these problems by securing a power source for IoT and RFID. Energy harvesting has the potential to solve these hardware issues, providing greater reliability and operational lifetime in wireless sensor networks. We rely on organic photovoltaic. Over the last decade, organic solar cells have become a promising technology for next-generation solar cells with properties such as lightweight, flexibility, design opportunity, or low environmental impact. The high efficiency in low-light conditions makes our OPV modules great candidates for indoor applications.
