Novel technique to synthesize nanocrystals that harvest solar energy
August 25, 2012 Editor 0
One reason that solar energy has not been widely adopted is because light absorbing materials are not durable. Materials that harvest solar radiation for energy often overheat or degrade over time; this reduces their viability to compete with other renewable energy sources like wind or hydroelectric generators.
