Scientists managed to create the first solar cell with a quantum efficiency greater than 100%

Scientists from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) managed to create the first solar cell with a quantum efficiency of more than 100%.
Quantum efficiency is the ratio of the number of electrons that have arisen in the chain of the solar cell to the number of photons of a certain wavelength, incident on the surface per unit time. Given that a high-energy photon could "knock out" a few electrons, the quantum efficiency can exceed 100%.
NREL specialists managed to get 114% rate. For an item that works on radiation impinging in the solar spectrum, a value obtained for the first time.
The key to success, according to scientists, was the use of multi-exciton generation effect, in which one absorbed photon creates a single pair of "electron-hole." Such a mechanism is particularly effective in the so-called "quantum dots" - nanocrystals of the semiconductor, which begin to appear essentially quantum effects.

Scientists managed to create the first solar cell with a quantum efficiency greater than 100%
In a record efficiency solar cell using materials such as zinc oxide and lead selenide (precisely because it was to form "quantum dots"). The researchers hope that their development in the future will lead to solar panels that produce electricity that could cost competitive with electricity from other sources.

Android 4.0 ported to the tablet HP TouchPad

After HP announced the dismissal of the tablet TouchPad, the remnants of these devices have been sold for $ 99 apiece. As a result, a significant number of tablets was in the hands of enthusiasts who expect to make a TouchPad device running Android.
Alpha version of a modified version of CyanogenMod already managed to install the device, but they were unstable and did not support some features - above all, it regards the audio subsystem and Wi-Fi. Although the work is far from complete, the project participants are optimistic. First, they plan to add support for Wi-Fi and Android Market.
Interest in the TouchPad, will certainly stimulate the decision to transfer the HP operating system webOS developer community of open source software. With access to the source webOS, developers will have more information for porting Android.
As for the webOS, for all its virtues, this operating system could take in only 2% of U.S. smartphone market.
When it will be open source webOS, is still unknown, but the HP has already sparked a wave of approval and interest from the community of developers of open source software.
