Challenging silicon's grip on solar

Abstract:
A nanotech researcher recently thrust into the limelight gives us a tour of his lab.

Jin Zhang, a chemistry professor who works with nanomaterials at the University of California Santa Cruz, didn't expect the attention his lab's most recent publication garnered.

Within two days of a university announcement of his new nanotech solar innovation, the story was on 80 websites, and Zhang was fielding calls from around the world.

"The Internet spreads news faster, and to more people," he commented, pondering a call from China at 2 a.m. in the morning and a man from Israel who called and talked to the scientist for three hours.
