Photovoltaics from any semiconductor: Opens door to more widespread solar energy devices
This technology opens the door to the use of plentiful, relatively inexpensive semiconductors, such as the promising metal oxides, sulfides and phosphides, that have been considered unsuitable for solar cells because it is so difficult to taylor their properties by chemical means.

Sometimes going from the Lab to full production doesn't always work like it is "therorized". What is the efficiency of the new process cells? Can they be manufactured on automated lines in a roll to roll process? How cheaply can they be made?$1.00 per watt?,$0.50,$0.25 per watt? Bring it on, let's roll.
