Description: This is an electron microscope image of electrochemically grown TiO2 nanotubes. 10,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair, the tubes are filled with organic polymer in a new technique developed at Argonne for "growing" solar cells with the potential to be cheaper than current solar cells.
