Significance of paper by Han et al.: MIT chemical engineering group using carbon nanotubes were able to concentrate incident solar energy 100 times more than a regular photovoltaic cell. Their specially designed nanotubes are shaped into electromagnetic nano-antennas that capture and focus light energy; this feat is enabled by unique properties of collectively oscillating, entangled, many-body surface plasmon electron excitations that exist on the surfaces of such nanotubes

Lattice Energy LLC-Quote from New Geopolitics of Energy-a book by Prof Michael Klare-April 21 2013

  1. 1. LENRS: powering the world to a green future Lattice Energy LLC “Make no mistake: Rising powers/shrinking planet is a dangerous formula. Addressing the interlocking challenges of resource competition, energy shortages, and climate change will be among the most difficult problems facing the human community. If we continue to extract and consume the planets vital resources in the same improvident fashion as in the past, we will, sooner rather than later, transform the earth into a barely habitable scene of desolation. And if the leaders of todays Great Powers behave like those of previous epochs - relying on military instruments to achieve their primary objectives - we will witness unending crisis and conflict over what remains of value on our barren wasteland.” Michael T.
