Article is over a year old and we haven't heard anything new since.

And I have to agree to some of the commenter's responses, the science stated in the article doesn't really add up.

Well I'm sure you are aware of the lag in discovery and implementation

And here is another ApNano Materials (scroll down a little on the right) and I'm sure it will be a snow ball effect from here.

I am setting up three stationary solar chargers (24V, 36V, 48V) all of which will need some sort of converter or transformer. a local Solar business will be doing planning. Terrific how technological discoveries are constantly being made!

wow!

Okay,I'm seeing the writing on the wall and will be dumping my shares of Clepto Petroleum and Gargantuan Motors.The spectre of commercial quantities of such a technology would stand the entire global energy industry on it's head.I will reserve dedicated space in my mind for cheering this thing on.What a coup if they can pull it off.Thanks for sharing that!
