Novel Nanostructures for Efficient Long-Range Energy Transport

The conversion of sunlight into electricity at low cost becomes increasingly important to meet the world's fast growing energy consumption. This task requires the development of new device concepts, in which particularly the transport of light-generated energy with minimal losses is a key aspect. An interdisciplinary group of researchers from the Bavarian initiative Solar Technologies Go Hybrid at the Universities of Bayreuth...
