Inexpensive Solar Cells Made From Carbon Nanotubes

Scientists at Rice University are developing new solar cells from single-wall nano tube arrays. These nano-tubes, grown in a process invented at Rice, are more electroactive and cheaper to make than current dye-sensitized solar cells (DSC). These solar cells typically use platinum as a catalyst, making solar power a not-so-cheap alternative. The new nanotube solar cells will pave the way …
