Nanoparticles innovation helps make solar panels more affordable

"The field of colloidal quantum dot photovoltaics requires continued improvement in absolute performance, or power conversion efficiency," said Professor Ted Sargent.

The new sun-soaking nanoparticles are called colloidal quantum dots, and researchers at the University of Toronto's Edward S. Rogers Sr. Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering think they could, aside from improving solar cell production, help developers create improved infrared lasers, gas ...
