        David Carroll Improves Solar Cell Efficiency Using Nanotechnology

        Explore research into new methods that use nanotechnology to improve the efficiency of plastic solar cells. Find out how one scientist has developed a method to embed nano-sized balls of carbon known as "fullerenes" into light-absorbing plastic. David Carroll is getting closer to creating a new kind of solar cell, one made of plastic that would be lightweight, flexible, and more efficient than the more familiar silicon solar cells.
