In search of the 'most rational design' for anti-reflective finish
Researchers in Spain have examined different buildings of anti-reflective and anti-soiling finishes for PV module glass, aiming to create a product that uses the most effective equilibrium of desired product homes at the lowest cost. Over a year of testing, the most effective finishes were revealed to increase module result by around 2%, and also the group likewise made a number of monitorings that can influence future developments of coverings for PV module front glass.
