    And don't forget that we want top efficiency. The closer to 100% harvest the better.

    Someone should write the ultimate solar energy guilt trip book. I'd call it "Squandering The Sun".

    1026 Watts.
    Dig it.

    Thanks - the abstract was enough to tell me that they're getting 95% absorption - and that's all this technology is for. There's still the issue of conversion to useful electrical power.

    Can we please have a moratorium on incremental tiny theoretical advances in solar cell technology? Also on anything about photosynthesis.

    Why?

    Small increments of an acorn leads out a giant oak.
