Researchers build world’s most efficient solar cell with the help of quantum dots

National Renewable Energy Laboratory

Researchers from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in the U.S. have successfully created a quantum dot solar cell. The solar cell has the highest energized particle percentage output of any other solar energy device and could be used to expand the use of solar energy exponentially. According to researchers, the solar cell has an efficiency of 114%, which makes it the most efficient solar cell on the planet. With this new development, a new day may be dawning for the alternative energy industry. Solar power is gaining momentum in…
