    Interesting indeed. But the power density requirement of 10 MW/cm2 for current materials puts it beyond practical use. However, I'm sure they'll be a surge of interest in new materials, as the fabrication aspects could mean cheaper devices than current solar cells.

    There is still way in advances in science and technology, if the earth is not destroyed soon.
