A recent article released by Lawrence Berkeley Labs announced their new gold-based fabrication method that increases the electrical conductance of nanocrystals used in solar energy technologies by 100,000 times.  Since electrical conductance is a critical element for solar electricity and solar fuels, an international standard method for measuring electrical conductance is needed so that nanoscale semiconducting material vendors and purchasers have an apples-to-apples comparison of electrical conductance between one another.  Berkeley Labs should work with the U.S. Technical Advisory Group to IEC TC 113 to develop this standard.
