“Greenhouse Gas” Technology Goes to Work for Low-Cost Solar Power System

“Greenhouse Gas” Technology Goes to Work for Low-Cost Solar Power System

Instead of using mirrors, the MIT researchers fabricated a crystalline material arrayed with precisely spaced microscopic holes. Sunlight can enter the holes, but most of the radiation can’t find its way out by the same route. That’s because holes are configured in such a way that the rays must reflect back at precisely the right angle in order to escape. Think of a high-tech lobster trap of nanoscale proportions, and you’re on the right track. David L. Chandler of MIT News compares this approach to the greenhouse effect, in which radiation from the sun is admitted to the Earth’s atmosphere and is trapped there.
