Scientist discovers melanin can generate electricity from sunlight


Cheap, green electrical devices: The ultimate goal of his group,
the Soft Condensed Matter Physics Group, is to understand more about
the physics and chemistry of this biological material and build low
cost, environmentally friendly electrical devices from it. Dr
Meredith’s group has already built a prototype sensor with melanin that
measures water content but it is also building an organic chemical
sensor and transistor.
