Certain nanocrystals shown to generate more than one electron A team of Los Alamos researchers led by Victor Klimov has shown that carrier multiplication"”when a photon creates multiple electrons"”is a real phenomenon in tiny semiconductor crystals and not a false observation born of extraneous effects that mimic carrier multiplication. The research, explained in a recent issue of Accounts of Chemical Research, shows the possibility of solar cells that create more than one unit of...
