I agree Elizabeth, I think all advancements in solar are good news. The sun has a lot to give! And it's free. Just imagine if we could capture 100%!

Though this technology has not made it into the commercial market yet, it is very good news for the future potential of solar cells. Interesting to note that this was achieved by meshing more than one semiconductor together, not achieved from a single solar cell. But, and perhaps an expert reader can correct me if I'm wrong--I think this type of multiple-cell technology is the way forward for solar.
