Arizona gets plenty of sunlight, and researchers there are working hard to turn that energy into electricity we can use. At Arizona State University, graduate students make and test new materials that will allow us to build smaller, cheaper, flexible photovoltaic solar cells that can go almost anywhere and test solar cells to see how surface shape affects the energy production of the cells
