The photovoltaic cells currently being used to turn sunlight into electricity can absorb and use only a small fraction of that light, leaving a significant amount of solar energy untapped.

Members of KNI Board member Harry Atwater’s group, in collaboration with the FOM Institute in Amsterdam, have found a way to absorb and make use of these infrared rays with a structure composed of metal. This work was published in a paper titled, "Plasmoelectric Potentials in Metal Nanostructures." Read more…
