Venture capitalists like it clean

Martin Roscheisen, CEO of Nanosolar Inc., holds up a plastic vial filled with dark, purple liquid -- the secret ingredient behind a new kind of technology startup that's turning heads in Silicon Valley. In a private laboratory here, Nanosolar scientists are designing low-cost solar electricity cells that Roscheisen submits will make solar power competitive with conventional energy sources. The purple liquid is a nano-engineered material that "self-assembles" into tiny solar cells that convert sunlight into electricity.
