Penn group shows plasmons converting light to current

By / February 18, 2010

Last fall we wrote about Penn’s Nano/Bio Center getting a $11.7 million NSF grant. According to a new release from the university, some of the work is paying off in the form of gold-on-glass nanogrid that can convert light directly into electrical current. A group of material scientists at the center say that when light…
