Breakthrough in solar photovoltaics

Abstract:
Nanosolar Inc. claims that it has developed a commercial scale technology that can deliver solar electricity at 5 cents per kilowatt-hour.

The breakthrough has come through the application of nanotechnology to create components via molecular self-assembly, including quantum dots (10nm large nanoparticles) as well as nanotemplates with structural order extending through all three dimensions.
