This Solar Cell is highly efficient and can harvests more of sun’s energy

  A team of researchers from MIT and the Masdar Institute of Science and Technology has developed new solar cell that includes two different layers of sunlight-absorbing material to harvest a broader range of the sun’s energy and that costs less than its counterparts. The researchers call the device a “step cell,” because the two […]
