SolarWorld is now accepting applications for the 2014 SolarWorld Junior Einstein Award. Now in its ninth year, the Junior Einstein Award is for young scientists doing research relevant to the solar photovoltaic industry.
Solar research has focused on improving the performance of solar photovoltaic cells and bringing down their cost. But very little attention has been paid to the best ways of arranging those cells. Now, a team of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) researchers has come up with a different approach.
