    Optical Hyperdoping: Transforming Semiconductor Band Structure for Solar Energy Harvesting, at Third-Generation Solar Technologies Multidisciplinary Workshop: Synergistic Chemistry-Materials-Mathematical Sciences Approaches to Addressing Solar Energy Problems (San Francisco, CA), Monday, April 5, 2010:
    Harvesting solar energy at the terawatt scale requires technologies that can be produced inexpensively using Earth-abundant materials. Although technologies built from Earth-abundant materials exist for converting solar energy to electrical energy or chemical energy, none are yet cost-competitive with fossil fuels. Meeting the challenge of harvesting solar energy with Earth-abundant materials such as Si and TiO2 will require transformative approaches to increase efficiency, lower manufacturing cost, and reduce material requirements. While these materials have been widely studied, we bring a... Read more about Optical Hyperdoping: Transforming Semiconductor Band Structure for Solar Energy Harvesting
