Fascinating... Maybe now we can all get the solar car roof we've all been wanting! I wonder how long until this technique is commercialized? It doesn't sound like there's any real barrier to it.

As soon as your LEAF has a 250 mile range.

You lost me. Or are you trying to say it'll never be commercialized? If so, why not? It sounds simple enough.

Touché. Certainly not anytime soon, that's for sure. This sounds like it could be commercialized next week, it's such a simple process...

Just post here when it's available. Probably 2 weeks.

This sounds a lot like what a buddy of mine was working on while he was doing his postdoc at Stanford. I'm not a scientist so I get lost fast, but some of you who know more about solar technology might enjoy some of his research.
