IBM Claims Major Thin-Film Breakthrough

IBM Claims Major Thin-Film Breakthrough

IBM scientists have achieved what they claim is a significant scientific milestone toward creating very low-cost electronic circuits with record high performance. A team of researchers at IBM's T.J. Watson Research Center recently developed a simple, low-cost process to make extraordinarily thin films of semiconducting materials that allows electrical charges to move through them about 10 times more easily than had been reported for all other similar approaches. Such an increase can enable a broad array of low-cost electronics and new pervasive-computing applications. And that also means the possibility for a great advances in solar photovoltaic (PV) power.
