@_hm: Well we do have the ultraviolet(UV), near UV portions of spectrum yet to be covered efficiently, though the good news is there have been some technologies already out of research-hub, that use some multi layered amorphous semiconductors, where each layer is doped specifically to absorb a particular wavelength.

This innovation in technology, no doubt gives us hope that the solar cell might someday convert the full spectrum of light i.e. from Ultra-violet to Infra-red into electric power efficiently, making solar cells the most popular and coveted alternative source of energy in near future.

"I agree with you on that. some of those gadgets that were kind of lirs or film tricks of time past are the realities of today. who would jave believed then that PC would metamorphosis into tabs today. This age would usher in an era where almost anything would be possible"

Adeniji, let's hope for the best!!!

"I mean if the efficiency is high, with the same area we can get more electricity for our needs. "

Alex, as of now that's the only drawback with PV cells. the efficiency of PV cells has to be increased for a better production from the same panel.

Jacob, that's right. I mean if the efficiency is high, with the same area we can get more electricity for our needs.

This is wonderful idea. We covered visible, near IR and IR. What are other spectrum band yet to explore?

"Looking at limited resources this generation has and what upcoming generations will get, its the need of hour that this must be materialized. ANd the governments need to strongly support it.'

SP, today's imagination is tomorrow's innovation and technology. Things are happening in that direction, the innovative ideas or imaginations from science fiction stories and moves are paving the way to have R&D in similar direction.

@ t.alex, I agree with you on that, for some time now, I have been wondering why solar energy is generally accepted as the best form of alternative energy to crude and yet seems the most expensive and due to different factors- seems to be unreliable. This research should at least bring us close to much more success in solar power.

Scotland is doing a lot of great research in renewable energy technologies (wind, water, wave) and has a fantastic reputation in research in general.  I found it doubly impressive that Scotland is at the forefront of solar reasearch considering it is one of the wettest, cloudiest places on earth.....only kidding.
