New Metamaterial Could Be A Perfect Solar Solution

Researchers at Duke University and Boston College have created what could become the perfect solution to solar energy. They have engineered a metamaterial that utilizes tiny geometric shapes to absorb both the electrical and magnetic properties of viagra online in uk electromagnetic waves over a certain frequency range at a level that meets standards of scientific perfection. This results in the total absorption of light, turning it into heat, which can then create energy.

 

Willie J Padilla, lead researcher for the team at Boston College, says the metamaterial is designed to ensure that all the light hitting it is neither reflected nor transmitted, but instead is visit our site cheap quality viagra entirely turned to heat and absorbed. This works with light at only a very narrow frequency range, but is a big step forward – perhaps eventually even more so than the usa tramadol no prescription Russian “Star Battery.”

 

Metamaterials are designed in such a way that their physical components gain new properties that allow them to respond to cheap quality cialis radiation in “tailored” ways. This is the first metamaterial to demonstrate perfect absorption and because it is constructed of metallic elements, it can be used for a variety of applications for detecting and collecting light, one of which could eventually be the highly efficient generation of solar power.

One problem I see...

These effectively collect heat. The conversion of heat into electricity is not all that efficient... 30% or so at a typical coal plant.

This is about what the sterling engine type of canadian levitra solar collectors get now.

I'm not sure how much of an improvement this material will be.
