New process for solar cells: DRAMATIC increase in power

From: user 6.
Sent on: Monday, February 11, 2013 1:00 PM
Here's a writeup on the new solar cell technique I mentioned at the meetup last Saturday.
 
 
Instead of using the bandgap in silicon like regular solar cells, it uses an array of nanometer-size antennas.
 
Still many years of development needed, but it could result in more than TRIPLE the power of current solar cells!
