Octillion Corp. recently announced that its research and development initiatives are under way for the development of a new patent-pending technology using nanosilicon photovoltaic solar cells that have the potential to convert normal home and office glass windows into those capable of converting solar energy into electricity. These nanosilicon photovoltaic solar cells are created through an electrochemical and ultrasound process that produces identically sized (1-4 nanometers in diameter), highly luminescent nanoparticles of silicon that provide varying wavelengths of photoluminescence with high quantum down conversion efficiency of short wavelengths (50-60%).
