Células solares 3D: Más allá de lo plano [EN] via @element14 #EnergíasAlternativas #Solar

3D Solar collection concept (via Solar3D) Another solar vie for the record holder. An obvious draw back to the conventional solar panel is that it attempts to capture, in a flat area, a highly reflective entity which travels through three-dimensional space. Electrical engineer, Nadir Dagli, an expert in photonics and nanophotonics, from a company called Solar3D, is thinking out side the conventional plane, proposing a solar cell which exploits the reflectivity of photons by designing a three dimensional solar cell. This 3D solar cell attempts to manage incident light by using new fiber optic materials and techniques. The cell is comprised of a volume, in which light is collected and reflected with in it. This type of collection allows for the photons to bounce inside the cell until it is absorbed by a photovoltaic cell. The orientations of the photovoltaic cells increase t...
