Nanomaterials could double efficiency of solar cells by converting waste heat into usable energy

MIT-Solar-Thermal-1_0 An experimental solar cell created by MIT researchers could massively increase the amount of power generated by a given area of panels, while simultaneously reducing the amount of waste heat. Even better, it sounds super cool when scientists talk about it: “with our own unoptimized geometry, we in fact could break the Shockley-Queisser limit.” Read More
