Boffins warm to super-efficient solar cells

Boffins warm to super-efficient solar cells - Hardware -

Itnews reports about 'nano flakes', a newly discovered material could improve the transformation of solar energy to electricity.

If researcher Martin Aagesen's future solar cells meet early expectations, the economy and the environment will benefit from the research which could make solar power generation viable for ordinary households...

Aagesen pointed out that less than one per cent of the world's electricity comes from the Sun because it is difficult to transform solar energy to electricity.

But he believes his discovery may be a "huge step" towards boosting the exploitation of solar energy.
