(Phys.org) —A new method for transferring energy from organic to inorganic semiconductors could boost the efficiency of widely used inorganic solar cells.
Chips that use light, rather than electricity, to move data would consume much less power—and energy efficiency is a growing concern as chips' transistor counts rise.
Scientists may have overcome one of the major hurdles in developing high-efficiency, long-lasting solar cells—keeping them cool, even in the blistering heat of the noonday Sun.
