Our names are Badran M. Badran and Mahmoud M. Badran from Egypt, and its great bride to us to represent it

Badran birth date: 1-10 -1998

Mahmoud birth date: 2- 4 -2001

Our innovation is about solar energy

Our innovation is called: formation of solar cells from plants

Our goal: This invention has moved a step closer to overcoming one of the troubles to manufacture a low-cost solar cell formed from plants as in photosynthesis process


We had a certificate application form for a patent (No.1698/2010) from the Egyptian Academy Of Scientific Researcher And Technology on 30-9-2010(website

** Our parents are completely agreeing and are proud and they will be ready to sign any approval letter as well as our lab professors in which we are making our prototype.


This invention has moved a step closer to overcoming one of the troubles to manufacture a low-cost solar cell formed from plants ( Thylakoid part)

Usage of material as Thylakoid membrane of chloroplasts can absorb solar energy better than other materials used in solar cells. Currently, commercial solar cells are made from a refined, highly purified silicon crystal, similar to the material used in the manufacture of integrated circuits and computer chips (wafer silicon). The high cost of these silicon solar cells and their complex production process has generated interest in developing alternative photovoltaic technologies. Compared to silicon-based devices, Thylakoid solar cells are lightweight (which is important for small autonomous sensors), potentially disposable and inexpensive to fabricate, flexible, customizable on the molecular level, and have lower potential for negative environmental impact.

We send to you our photo. application patent copy, our CV., and the first sample for our invention

can we particepate as audionces for free ?

We are welling for any further details.

thanks for your effort with us

Best Wishes;

Badran & Mahmoud
