Sunny side up

Abstract:
Celia Lamb: Ruxandra Vidu dreams of building solar energy panels using wires smaller than a strand of DNA.

The Romanian immigrant, who moved to the United States by way of Japan in May 2000, has co-founded a company called Q1 NanoSystems Corp. to develop the panels. She created the tiny wires, called nanocables, while working as a post-doctorate researcher at a University of California Davis materials science laboratory.
