Solution for Manufacturing Full-Spectrum Solar Cells Found
Part of the verification that the device worked was taken from when current was applied to it. When a solar material is subject to current, it reverses from absorbing photons, to emitting them (goes from a photodiode to a light-emitting diode). The resulting LED admitted emitted three peaks in the visible range and a peak in the infrared range.
