Hybrid solar cell converts both light and heat from sun's rays into electricity
Washington DC (SPX) Sep 14, 2015
Scientists have developed a new hybrid, solar-energy system that harnesses the full spectrum of the sun's radiation by pairing a photovoltaic cell with polymer films. The films convert the light that goes unused by the solar cell into heat and then converts the heat into electricity. They report on their device, which produces a voltage more than five times higher than other hybrid systems, in the journal ACS Nano. Solar cells today are getting better at converting sunlight to electricity, b ... read more
