Sun-free photovoltaics: Silicon chip micro-reactors contain photonic crystals on both flat faces, with external tubes for injecting fuel and air and ejecting waste products. In use, these reactors would have a photovoltaic cell mounted against each face to convert the emitted wavelengths of light to electricity. Credit: Justin Knight, MIT.
