Inexpensive as well as reliable method to change solar cells from nontransparent to clear
Scientists in Korea have actually discovered a economical and also reliable method to change solar cells from nontransparent to clear. Existing clear solar cells have a tendency to have a red shade as well as reduced performance, yet by punching openings that are around 100? m in size (equivalent in dimension to a human hair) on crystalline silicon wafers, it permits light via without tinting. The holes are after that tactically spaced, so the human eye is not able to "see" the pattern. The job shows up December 11 in the journal Joule.
