A versatile new measurement system has been devised that can accurately and quickly measure the electric power output of solar energy devices. These abilities are very useful to the development and manufacture of next-generation solar energy cells.
Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) created the new system hoping to aid in the development of machines that will more efficiently and cost-effectively convert sunlight, something greatly needed if a quick reduction in carbon pollution is going to occur.

Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours.
