    How does a 5.9% power conversion compare with typical solar cells?

    [It's low. However, the figure of merit that really makes a difference is total cost per watt installed, and that really doesn't show up at all in these early lab developments. The reason to watch them is just to have an idea of what may be coming down the pike. -jsh]
