Carnegie Mellon Researchers Create New Form of Silicon with Potential for Solar and LEDs

While direct band gap materials can effectively absorb and emit light,
indirect band gap materials, like diamond-structured silicon, cannot. A team of
researchers at Carnegie Mellon university headed by Timothy Strobel, have
created a new form of silicon with a quasi-direct band gap that falls within
the desired range for solar absorption. The silicon …
