Virginia nanotechnology business receives stimulus money for solar-cell projects

Abstract:
Scientists at Luna nanoWorks here are developing with stimulus money what they hope to be a breakthrough for solar-cell technology.

Roanoke-based Luna Innovations was awarded $1.65 million in stimulus money over three years from the Department of Energy for two solar-cell projects in Danville, said Kenneth Walker, executive vice president of Luna's technology-development division.

About six local scientists and technicians are working on improving the efficiency and manufacture of ingredients for organic or plastic solar cells.
