Most of today's solar cells are made from silicon wafers cut from blocks of crystals. The wafers are typically 0.2-0.25-mm thick, yet most of the photon-to-electricity conversion takes place in the outermost 0.02 mm of the wafer. In an effort to reduce the amount of Si required (and thus the cost) for solar cells, BP Solar (Frederick, Md; edlinks.che.com/6517-538) is supporting a three-year research...

    Nanotechnology, in the form of nanomaterials, is already a significant business for the chemical process industries (CPI). One recent study says that this year’s global nanotechnology market is worth more than $10 billion, of which 86% is attributable to nanomaterials, and that the total market will reach $25 billion by 2011 (see box). This figure includes well-established commercial...
