Fundamentally new cheap type of solar cells created from a lubricant for motorcycles and weapons- VIDEO PDF Print E-mail

According to the Nature Photonics magazine, researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) reported about development of a fundamentally new type of solar cells, based on the effect of the so-called "solar energy funnel", that can collect energy with a much higher efficiency than do it a silicon solar cells. According to a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), they managed to make a solar panel on the basis of the effect of "solar energy funnel" from the very cheap and ubiquitous material- molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), which is now widely used as a lubricant in two-stroke engines, such as engines of motorcycles, as well as from the time of the Vietnam War, used as lubricant for weapons. As reported, solar energy vortexes created by microscopic needle, which are piercing the microscopic holes in the thin membrane from MoS2 in one molecule thick, as a result of this change the atomic structure of MoS2 membrane so, that it turns a kind of funnel, which is able to collect more energy, than the solar cells and solar panels on the basis of expensive silicon. The principle of solar cells based on the effect of "solar energy funnel" can be seen in the video, but it should be borne in mind, that the video shows only one solar macro solar energy funnel and on MoS2 membrane, just one square meter, can be located a few hundred million of micro solar energy funnels, THE VIDEO:
