    The 10x increase must refer to nano or organic cells, or nano organic cells. Commercial silicon cells are 8-12% efficient, meaning that 10x improvement is likely impossible... (converting 120% of the incident light into electricity would be some trick!)

    The title says 10x more "than previously thought".
