Solar energy would benefit from using thin films, but getting thin semiconductors to absorb light is tricky. (I wrote a cover feature for Optics & Photonics News about that.) This research from Berkeley Lab should help designers developing thin-film solar cells, detectors, and possibly other optoelectronics.
