Eyes inspire more efficient solar cell architecture

Tiny silicon cones inspired by the eye's fovea centralis could unlock big gains in solar c...

Solar cells don’t at first glance have any relation to a tiny structure in the eye that makes our central vision sharp, but that tiny structure – called the fovea centralis – may be the key to a huge boost in solar cell efficiency. A team of scientists at Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin and the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light took the underlying mechanisms that guide the fovea and adapted them to silicon as a surface for collecting light in solar cells… Continue Reading Eyes inspire more efficient solar cell architecture
