    Looks very promising but we will have to wait.

    Isn't it very much like nanosolar's solution?
    Looks cool though.

    NanoSolar's stuff falls into the category of CIGS. The IBM solution does not need indium, instead it uses relatively common metals and sulfur.

    IBM develops promising contender for cheaper solar cells


    They should have called it "cavorite".

    That part seemed to stand out to me as well.
    Paves the way to solar cell coating on everything that gets out into sunlight :-).

    discombobulatorr space mirrors will find it useful for ground based photo voltaic power stations.

    Weak. We're only moments away from the Orbasmaclysm, (or is it the Orbocalypse, I get mixed up when it comes to these apocryphal neologisms) and yet there are those who get all balled up in stuff that only might work.

    Landru, guide us!

    ETA: Refer to STTOS for info on Landru.

    interesting
    they are almost as efficient as convntional pv cells and they are also almost cheaper

    There are a lot of things that people are trying to develop for cheaper cells. The IBM stuff looks like it might pan out, but it will be 10 years before market impact if it does.
