Tangled up in Bloo (Solar): Start-up believes 3-D PV has a commercial not-too-distant future

Abstract:
In case you've been asleep and not checking on the progress made in the research community, here's a news flash: nanotechnology will be one of the key enablers of the next (AKA third, fourth) generation(s) of photovoltaic cells and modules. Whether done in a solution/print processing in atmospheric conditions, a more standard vacuum process, or some sort of sci-fi scenario to be deciphered later, the scaling down of materials could quite possibly lead to the scaling up of efficiencies, at costs competitive with or better than what the first- and second-gen PV crowd can muster. At least that's how the argument goes for many of what I like to call the "nano-whatsits" crowd.

One such nano-enabled start-up with a funny name has recently re-emerged from quasi-stealth mode with medium-term time-to-market ambitionsóBloo Solar.
