If Sol Voltaics is proved correct, its GaAs nanowire arrays could be used in tandem solar cell designs to deliver significantly higher conversion efficiency than is otherwise possible with silicon PV. The big question is whether that better efficiency would offset the additional cost of the technology. Credit: US National Renewable Energy Laboratory.
