13 A Carbon-Based Solar Cell 2D-Graphene1D-Carbon Nanotubes Strongest material known – Carbon nanotubes are 300 times stronger than steel. Exceptional electronic properties – Grow metallic and semiconducting. – 1000 times more conductive than copper. – We can use carbon nanotubes to absorb light and generate electricity!
