UAlberta spray-on zinc phosphide PV

Researchers at the University of Alberta (UAlberta), Canada, have designed a new type of nanoparticles from the earth-abundant elements phosphorus and zinc. Years in the making, the discovery could lead to inexpensive spray-on or printed photovoltaic thin films that bring solar power to remote off-grid locations or areas that face exceptionally energy costs, such as the Canadian North.
