Chemist explores nanotechnology in search of cheaper solar cells

Luke Hanley at the University of Illinois at Chicago received a $390,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to test methods of coating solar panel films using nanoparticles from a chemical group called metal chalcogenides. The inexpensive films could be wrapped over everything from vehicles to buildings to gain maximum sunshine exposure and produce electricity.
