Nanowires for solar cells a hot topic at Clean Technology 2011 in Boston

This week, we attended the Clean Technology 2011 Conference in Boston, where much of the solar talk centered around nanowires. One of the more interesting presentations came from a representative of the Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), who discussed large-area amorphous silicon/silicon (a-Si/Si) hy...
