Those of you who watched The New Inventors back on 4 May 2011 would have seen an ANU researcher, Dr Kylie Catchpole, describe the use of a Plasmonic Light Trap (PLT) to deposit nanoparticles of silver on the surface of a thin-film solar cell, boosting the cell's efficiency by 30 per cent.

It's terrific to see Kylie and her research team at ANU doing such cutting-edge research.

Check out The New Inventor's episode on the Plasmonic Light Trap and also

the page on Nanostructures for solar cells on the ANU website.
