（2010-10-07）The review article "Silicon
Nanowires for Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conversion"
by Dr. Peng and Prof. Lee has been published on
Advanced Materials (DOI: 10.1002/adma.201002410). In the
last years, silicon nanowires (SiNWs) are under active investigation for PV applications because they offer novel approaches for solar-to-electric energy conversion leading to high-efficiency devices via simple manufacturing. This article reviews the recent developments in the utilization of SiNWs for PV applications, the relationship between SiNW-based PV device structure and performance, and the challenges to obtaining high-performance cost-effective solar cells.
