Novel wire-shaped polymer solar cells that have high performance are developed by introducing a thin layer of titania nanoparticles that increases the charge separation and transport and an aligned carbon nanotube fiber electrode that increases their stability. These solar cell wires are easily woven into flexible clothes that serve as lightweight and deformable power sources for portable electronic devices.
