Solar breakthrough: Nanoclusters extract hydrogen from water with 60% efficiency

from DVICE:

British scientists say they’ve achieved a breakthrough, figuring out how to extract hydrogen from water with an unheard-of 60% efficiency using solar energy.

The secret sauce is nanotechnology, in the form of nanoclusters of indium phosphide encrusted on a gold electrode. Using this, they can turn sunlight into that hotshot hydrogen fuel, clean-burning and as energetic as a swift kick in the ass.
