Researchers Find New Way To Create Low-Cost Solar Cells
Solar cells that use inorganic nanocrystals or "quantum dots" could be a cheaper alternative, but they are generally less efficient at turning solar energy into electricity. Technion researchers have now found a new way to generate an electrical field inside quantum dots, making them more suitable for building an energy-efficient solar cell.
