+ - Nano-sandwich material claimed to boost solar cell efficiency by 175 percent-> 1

Submitted by cylonlover
cylonlover (1921924) writes "One of the main reasons that solar cells aren’t more efficient at converting sunlight into electricity is because much of that sunlight is reflected off the cell, or can’t be fully absorbed by it. A new sandwich-like material created by researchers at Princeton University, however, is claimed to dramatically address that problem – by minimizing reflection and increasing absorption, it reportedly boosts the efficiency of organic solar cells by 175 percent."

We will have solar energy as soon as the utility companies solve one technical problem -- how to run a sunbeam through a meter.
