Swinburne’s nanoplasmonic solar cell achievement in the National Nanotechnology Research Strategy

Friday December 7 2012

In newly published the National Nanotechnology Research Strategy by the Australian Academy of Science, Swinburne’s nanoplasmonic solar cell achievement has been highlighted (page 61).

The research strategy highlights a range of existing and emerging nanotechnology applications. The strategy includes eight key recommendations for strategic investment and coordination considered essential for supporting Australian nanotechnology research and effective translation of that research into benefits for the community.

In the document, it is mentioned that the current world record for thin film nanoplasmonic solar cell efficiency is now held by the technology developed by the Victoria-Suntech Advanced Solar Facility at Swinburne.
