Why Adding Holograms To Solar Cells Could Lead To Massive Performance Boost
Renew Economy
A new study led by UArizona electrical and computer engineering professor and BIO5 member Dr. Raymond Kostuk, found that holograms could hold the secret to solving a common problem with solar cell designs. This discovery uses holograms to allow solar cells to capture sunlight that would normally be wasted and can boost electricity yields by as much as five percent.
