University of Alberta discovery would make solar panels cheaper, lighter

from Edmonton Journal

As University of Alberta chemist Jillian Buriak tells it, scientists have a list of "wouldn't it be great" ideas for materials. Wouldn't it be great if they could use some of the most abundant materials on Earth, like zinc and phosphorus, to build cheaper, lighter solar panels? Wouldn't it be great if the technology could be easily transported to places that desperately need new energy sources? Those wistful thoughts led Buriak and a team of researchers through a four-year experiment, resulting in a new solar cell that could be used around the world. more
