Some solar devices, like calculators, only need a small panel of solar cells to function. But supplying enough power to meet all our daily needs would require enormous solar panels. And solar-powered energy collected by panels made of silicon, a semiconductor material, is limited – contemporary panel technology can only convert approximately seven percent of optical solar waves into electric current. Profs. Koby Scheuer, Yael Hanin and Amir Boag of Tel Aviv University's Department of...
