In 10 seconds? Scientists have come up with a composite material that can boost the efficiency of solar panels to previously unseen levels. They've also realized how to best utilize certain colors in the light spectrum to get the optimum output from solar cells.
What's the story? Researchers have combined perovskite compounds with traditional silicon in solar cells to harvest more energy from sunlight than ever before. By using multiple materials, they've improved the absorption from certain colors and thus enhanced the power output of the solar panels.
