Nanoscience at Work: Creating Energy from Sunlight
13 Jun 2007 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): A. Paul Alivisatos
Professor Paul Alivisatos introduces the Helios Project for the 2007 'Science at the Theater' series at Berkeley Repertory Theater in Berkeley, California. He discusses how Helios Project researchers use nanotechnology in the efficient capture of sunlight, and its conversion to electricity to drive economical fuel production processes. The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory’s Helios Project concentrates on renewable fuels such as biofuels, solar technologies such as photovoltaic cells, and the conversion of electricity into chemical storage.
