Researchers at the Technical University of Eindhoven, in the Netherlands, have staked the claim to the highest conversion efficiency yet achieved with a nanowire-based solar cell: 17.8 percent. While this new mark edges out the previous record of 15.3 percent, it still falls well short of the 46-percent theoretical limit for these cells.
