» Researchers: Nanoscale Coating Improves Solar Efficiency IBM's Next Generation Solar Array Scientists from the Aalto University offer yet another way of using nanostructures to improve solar cell efficiency . A new nanoscale coating technique can significantly reduce the losses of solar radiation that occur due to reflection. The new cost-effective photovoltaic material is currently being developed under a research program called “Photonics and Modern Imaging Techniques.” The nanostructured black silicon coating features very low reflectivity, meaning that a larger portion of the Sun’s radiation can be exploited. At Aalto University, a research team led by Assistant Professor Hele Savin is conducting studies on crystalline silicon solar cells, which are the main type of solar cells that are currently on the market. “The advantages of silicon include the long-term stabili...
