Report Looks at How Nanotechnology is Changing the Field of Photovoltaic Innovation

Published on September 16, 2009 at 9:30 PM

Research and Markets, the leading source for international market research and market data, has announced the addition of the "Nanotechnology and Photovoltaics Trends and Market Potential" report to their offering.

Nanotechnology, shortened to "Nanotech," is the study of the control of matter on an atomic and molecular scale. Generally nanotechnology deals with structures of the size 100 nanometers or smaller, and involves developing materials or devices within that size.

Nanotechnology is very diverse, ranging from novel extensions of conventional device physics, to completely new approaches based upon molecular self-assembly, to developing new materials with dimensions on the nanoscale, even to speculation on whether we can directly control matter on the atomic scale.

Although nanotechnology is a relatively recent development in scientific research, the development of its central concepts happened over a longer period of time.

Photovoltaic (PV) is the field of technology and research related to the application of solar cells for energy by converting sun energy (sunlight or sun ultra violet radiation) directly into electricity. Due to the growing demand for clean sources of energy, the manufacture of solar cells and photovoltaic arrays has expanded dramatically in recent years.

The coming together of these two technologies has become the talk of the town lately.

This report looks at how nanotechnology is changing the field of photovoltaic innovation.

From the basics of nanotech to the basics of photovoltaic, this report looks at how nanotech is making possible new developments in the solar PV industry.
