World's Most Transparent Solar Panel

Transparent Solar Panel

This is the world's most transparent solar panel. It can capture solar energy and turn it into electricity. It's designed to turn every glass window into a power generator. Visible light passes through the transparent solar concentrator.  While invisible ultraviolet waves are captured by small organic molecules. The captured rays are converted into a colorless infrared wavelength. The rays are collected and sent to the edge of the solar concentrator. Where photovoltaic solar cells convert light energy into electricity. Researchers want to integrate this technology into small screens as an initial  step. Their aim is to achieve 10% efficiency before applying it to different devices.
