Black Silicon

I really was expecting more from this interview with the founder of SiOnyx on the technology behind "black silicon".

For technical details, skip to the original press releases or the university research pages.

Or even better, check the papers or a couple of their patents describing the fabrication methods:

"The photodetector exhibits a responsivity greater than about 1 A/W for incident wavelengths in a range of about 250 nm to about 1050 nm, and a responsivity greater than about 0.1 A/W for longer wavelengths, e.g., up to about 3.5 microns".

If they can use normal foundries as the interview suggests, this is really something.
