Solar cells firing on all cylinders

William Bergius writes about a hot ChemComm article for Chemistry World

Scientists in china have manufactured cylindrical dye-sensitised solar cells (DSSCs) capable of generating a stable electrical output at different times of the day. Compared to their traditional flat counterparts, if correctly positioned so that the sun moves around their axis, their output is far less dependent of the angle of the sun.
