Solar3D Submits Patent Application For Three-Dimensional Solar Cell


Solar3D Inc., the developer of a three-dimensional solar cell technology, has filed a patent application for its solar cell design and methods of fabrication.

Inspired by light-management techniques used in fiber optic devices, the company's solar cell technology utilizes a three-dimensional design to trap sunlight inside microphotovoltaic structures, where photons bounce around until they are converted into electrons, Solar3D explains. The company's management believes that this breakthrough solar cell will be dramatically more efficient, resulting in a lower cost per watt.
