Nanotech Startups Eye Solar Energy Spotlight

Abstract:
At least three startups Nanosolar, Nanosys and Konarka Technologies are using nanotech to try to make solar energy more viable. In time, such work could become "world changing," said Josh Wolfe, a managing partner of nanotech-focused investment firm Lux Capital in New York. Lux has invested in Nanosys.

"All three of these firms have a different approach, but all of them are trying to create solar energy anywhere, any time," Wolfe said.
