Judy Wu, Distinguished Professor of Physics and Astronomy, and her research group, in collaboration with Professor Rongqing Hui's group in KU electrical engineering and computer science, have developed a technique for attaching a layer of metal nanoparticles to graphene, vastly improving graphene's capacity to soak up sunlight and re-emit it in a much-condensed form due to "plasmonic resonance," a critical step toward high-efficiency solar cells that drastically improves their light absorption.
