Microscopic Folds that Increase Solar Cell Performance

Microscopic Folds that Increase Solar Cell Performance

The curves in the solar cells will channel light through the material mimicking the morphology of leaves and how they harvest more light using something as simple as microscopic folds. The absorption capacity of conventional solar cells is lowered when the light’s wavelength increases, but the application of the folding technique will increase the spectrum end by a whopping 600 percent.
