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.
