Indian berry contains a crucial ingredient for creating cheap solar cells

A group of researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) have discovered a pigment in a species of berries (Syzygium cumini) from the indigenous jamun tree that absorbs large amounts of sunlight. The scientists have been experimenting with the pigment (anthocyanin) and believe using it for mass production could make solar panels far less expensive, which might
