    OT: China_S2 - More on graphene

    While silicon has long been the standard for commercial solar cells, new research from the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) in Spain has shown that graphene could prove far more efficient when it comes to transforming light into energy. The study found that unlike silicon, which generates only one current-driving electron for each photon it absorbs, graphene can produce multiple electrons. Though the application of graphene in solar cells is only theoretical, the potential outlined in the study is remarkable; solar cells made with graphene could offer 60% solar cell efficiency – double the widely-regarded maximum efficiency of silicon cells.

    • LOL - You must live in Allegan County, Michigan. C'Mon, you dropped enough clues to tell me you are within 200 miles.

      You wouldn't be interested in another hash code..... would you? I'm thinking it is about time to turn the garden again. Spring time you know!

    • I see that University Wafers is now offering to sell small lots of graphene wafers with a few customization options.

      I'm almost tempted to buy some and try your DVD etching theory-almost. Maybe we could simultaneously add a Hank Williams track and snag two markets.
