Making solar energy more affordable

Solar energy remains tantalizingly out of reach as a widely used power source, but UNL engineer Jinsong Huang and his team is making big strides in their quest to harness the sun. Current silicon-based solar cells are too expensive and inefficient, say researchers. Their target is to reduce solar cell costs by half, so it can compete with energy from fossil fuels.
