How Nanoshells Improve Thin Film Solar

How Nanoshells Improve Thin Film Solar

The credit for this out of the box thinking goes to a group of engineers from Stanford University.According to a paper published in Nature Communications, engineers have developed empty core nano sized spheres made of nano crystalline silicone. They call them Nanoshells. Nano crystalline silicone has high electric efficiency and is durable enough to withstand harsh sun. The underside of nano crystalline silicon is that it absorbs relatively lesser light that leads to sub optimal solar energy harnessing without having thick layers
