④Nanowire technology can double the efficiency of solar cells
A research team at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) has developed a method for fabricating ultra-high-efficiency solar cells using semiconductor nanowire materials. If applied to conventional silicon-based solar cells, this approach promises to double the efficiency of today’s silicon solar cells at low cost. The research paper was published in ACS Photonics, a journal of the American Chemical Society.
