Display company powers up prospects
Cambridge Display Technology will use a grant to brighten the 
prospects for solar cells as well as flat-panel monitors.

  "develop efficient and commercially viable solar cells using its 
light-emitting diode (LED) screen technology."
  ..."The polymer solar cells have a similar design as CDT's polymer 
light-emitting displays, but instead of emitting light, researchers 
have been able to reverse the process so that the displays can 
generate electricity when light shines on a solar cell. ... CDT is 
also looking into a screen that can display information as well as 
act as a solar cell, "
