An innovative way to pattern metals could make the next generation of solar panels more sustainable and cheaper.

Key factors in how some algae harness solar energy

13 August, 2019
Science Daily
Scientists have discovered how diatoms -- a type of alga that produce 20 percent of the Earth's oxygen -- harness solar energy for photosynthesis. The discovery could help lead to more efficient and affordable algae-based biofuels and combat climate change from fossil fuel burning.
