Scientists from the U.S. Department of Energyâ€™s Brookhaven National Laboratory and the University of Florida have uncovered information that may help â€œmolecular wiresâ€? replace silicon in micro-electronic circuits and components in solar energy storage systems. [ more ] This technology will allow solar panel manufactures to replace rigid silicon based materials with polymer nanowires, which are cheaper and lighter. This polymer nature will allow for curved panels.
