Sunlight represents the cleanest, greenest and far and away most abundant of all energy sources, and yet its potential remains woefully under-utilized. High costs have been a major deterrant to the large-scale applications of silicon-based solar cells. Nanopillars "“ densely packed nanoscale arrays of optically active semiconductors "“ have shown potential for providing a next generation of relatively cheap and scalable solar cells, but have been hampered by efficiency issues. The...
