Clean Technica has this article published on their website about the amazing properties of graphene, a mareial that is capable of converting one proton into multiple “excited”electrons.

A new discovery by researchers at the ICFO has revealed that graphene is even more efficient at converting light into electricity than previously known. Graphene is capable of converting a single photon of light into multiple electrons able to drive electric current. The discovery is an important one for next-generation solar cells, as well as other light-detecting and light-harvesting technologies.
