Photosynthesis and Clean Energy
Prof. Zetian Mi talks about a new way to create energy from the sun – borrowing from the idea of photosynthesis.
Scientists have used artificial photosynthesis to generate clean energy. This process typically requires electricity or natural gas but now researchers have developed a new device that’s more than twice as efficient and runs only on water and sunlight. Zetian Mi, professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor joins Hari Sreenivasan via Google Hangout to discuss this breakthrough.
