Canada (TGW) – Researchers at McMaster University have developed new flexible, furry solar panels.
The panel uses light-absorbing nanowires made out of photovoltaic materials that are embedded onto either flexible polyester film and carbon nanotube fabric.
The team, led by Ray LaPierre, now aims to improve efficiency of the panels to about 40%.
The panels, because of the nanowires unique structures, absorb a greater range of the light spectrum.
