Amazing Solar Power Breakthrough - New Nano-Mesh | Catalyst Commercial Services - The Market Leading Business Energy Broker


However, a new innovation from Princeton University in the United States could well be the piece of news the solar industry has been waiting for.

Dubbed Plasmonic Cavity with Subwavelength Hole array or ‘PlaCSH’, scientists at the Ivy League university have created a nano-mesh that works with existing solar panels to boost efficiency.

Currently, industry-standard silicon and indium-tin-oxide-based solar cells are approaching the theoretical limit of 33.7% efficiency, however nanomesh reduces reflectivity and boosts efficiency of light capture to create a panel that is more than three-times more effective.
