Boston College's New Research into Ultra-Thin Solar Cells

Boston College physics professors Mike Naughton and Kris Kempa discuss their department's new research into ultra-thin solar cells in which they were able to observe the hot electron effect for the first time and then capture the elusive charges, which typically lose their energy to heat. The nanotechnology device could open a potential avenue to improved solar power efficiency in so-called 3rd Generation solar technology.
