Researchers synthesize new form of silicon for solar applications

Silicon is the second most-abundant element in the earth's crust. When purified, it takes on a diamond structure, which is essential to modern electronic devices - carbon is to biology as silicon is to technology. A team of scientists has synthesized an entirely new form of silicon, one that promises even greater future applications.
