  • Nanotechnology cuts costs and improves efficiency of photovoltaic cells

    Researchers have summarised the most effective ways that nanostructures can improve the efficiency and lower costs of photovoltaic (PV) solar cells in a recent analysis. Sculpting ultra-thin solar cell surfaces at the nano-scale has been found to effectively boost their efficiency. Making solar cells ultra-thin reduces their material costs, but often at the expense of their efficiency. These ...
