Researchers have come up with a new technique for improving the connections between stacked solar cells, which should improve the overall efficiency of solar energy devices and reduce the cost of solar energy production. The new connections can allow these cells to operate at solar concentrations of 70,000 suns' worth of energy without losing much voltage as 'wasted energy' or heat.6kBmWjwXuKk
