Solar energy: Charged for the future

Abstract:
Here are a few highlights of research toward improving the efficiency of solar cells:

Ultrathin, dye-sensitized solar cells called most efficient to date Researchers in Switzerland have developed dye-sensitized solar cells that have reached the highest efficiencies to date among a new generation of thin film photovoltaic devices that show promise as a low-cost energy source.

Carbon nanotubes could boost efficiency of solar cells Researchers at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana say they have found a new and promising way to boost the efficiency of solar cells.
