Researchers develop efficient solar cell technology by imitating plants' photosynthesis procedure
By causing a suitable electron flow procedure called vectorial transfer, South Korean researchers had the ability to create a solar cell production technique that can produce cells with as much as 60 percent more electron transfer efficiency than traditional cells. The brand-new technique allows photovoltaic cells to manage electron flow in one desired instructions to minimize the loss of electrons throughout power generation.
