The researcher's cells use iron oxide and tungsten oxide to do the light-capturing. Iron oxide absorbs visible light and tungsten oxide absorbs ultraviolet. Also tungsten oxide has a high refractive index. This means that light finds it hard to escape once it is inside a piece of tungsten oxide because it is bounced back and forth by a phenomenon called total internal reflection, increasing the chance it will be absorbed. p.78.
