Nanowires in carbon nanotubes have huge solar energy applications

Posted On: 2023-08-02

Tiny materials one hundred thousand times smaller than the width of a strand of hair could be used to improve solar cell technology. Materials as small as 1.2 nanometers across could function in solar cells, which harvest energy from the sun. The discovery of such small nanowires could potentially lead to new properties and applications of this type of sustainable energy.
