PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS:
• Electrical engineer Steve Chou and his team say their layering of plastic and metal can keep light from reflecting from organic solar cells
• 175 percent greater efficiency of cells
• solar cell uses an incredibly fine metal mesh: the metal is 30 nanometers thick, and each hole is 175 nanometers
