Solar Cell from a Single Molecule

If you’re into science, and especially if you’re into the science behind solar, check out this fun post on an exciting new development in solar energy research:

Solar Cell Made of a Single Molecule: Electrical Current Generated from Individual Protein Complex (via Clean Technica)

  A method to measure the photocurrents of a ‘single functionalized photosynthetic protein system’ has now been developed by researchers. The researchers are confident that they can show that such a system could be integrated and “selectively addressed” inside of an artificial photovoltaic…
