Oregon researchers glimpse pathway of sunlight to electricity

"Four pulses of laser light on nanoparticle photocells in a University of Oregon spectroscopy experiment has opened a window on how captured sunlight can be converted into electricity. The work, which potentially could inspire devices with improved efficiency in solar energy conversion, was performed on photocells that used lead-sulfide quantum dots as photoactive semiconductor material.  The research is detailed in a paper placed online by the journal Nature Communications."
