Making better solar cells with polychiral carbon nanotubes

Read the full story at EnvironmentalResearchWeb.

A new solar cell made from carbon nanotubes (CNTs) that is twice as good at converting sunlight into power than the best previous such cells has been unveiled by a team of researchers in the US. The National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) has already independently certified the performance of the device – a first for a CNT-based solar cell…

The research is published in Nano Letters.
