      Cheap, plastic solar cells that can be painted onto just about any
      surface could provide power for a range of portable and even wearable
      electronic devices, scientists said Thursday.

      A team at the University of California Berkeley said they had come up
      with a first generation of plastic solar cells, which could someday
      replace the bulky and expensive silicon-based cells used widely now.

      "Our efficiency is not good enough yet by about a factor of 10, but
      this technology has the potential to do a lot better," Paul
      Alivisatos, a professor of chemistry who led the study, said in a
      statement. "There is a pretty clear path for us to take to make this
      perform much better."
