Quantum Dot Solar Cell Improvements Show Remarkable Potential to Balance Solar Performance & Cost

September 28th, 2011 | by Glenn Meyers

As far as innovation on the technology front, this one is a winner. In tabulating efficiency ratings, however, quantum cells don't seem to perform as well as either silicon-based or CIGS solar cells. This may soon change. Nature Materials writes that a new efficiency record for wrapping colloidal quantum dot solar cells may represent a step towards narrowing the gap
