When it comes to boosting efficiency in solar panels—that is, increasing the amount of the sun’s energy each photovoltaic cell can harness—researchers have tried a lot of tricks. Many solar power systems are equipped with tracking devices that enable the solar panels to follow the sun, changing their angle so they are always attracting a maximum amount of solar energy. Now, researchers have developed a special glass coating for solar cells that capture sunlight from almost any direction and…
