I'm not familiar with this solar cell. I don't think the solar cell industry has much to worry about from competition from this. There are simple solar cells that can be made from a copper oxide-coated copper plate immersed in an electrolyte. These are old and well known but I don't have any specific information or directions. It goes without saying that such home-grown cells are likely to be very inefficient and are of interest only to demonatrate the photoelectric effect. J. R. McCormick
