Gerogia Tech have demonstrated the first optical rectenna using CNTs and ALD

Using nanometer-scale components - carbon nanotubes and atomic layer deposition researchers at Gerogia Tech have demonstrated the first optical rectenna, a device that combines the functions of antennas and a rectifier diodes to convert light directly into DC current. This could be a future technology to make very efficient solar cells!
