As solar gets smaller, its future gets brighter

Abstract:
Investors along Sand Hill Road in Menlo Park are pouring money into solar nanotech startups, hoping that thinking small will translate into big profits. Both inventors and investors are betting that flexible sheets of tiny solar cells used to harness the sun's strength will ultimately provide a cheaper, more efficient source of energy than the current smorgasbord of alternative and fossil fuels.

Nanosys and Nanosolar in Palo Alto - along with Konarka in Lowell, Mass. - say their research will result in thin rolls of highly efficient light-collecting plastics spread across rooftops or built into building materials.
