How to make a “perfect” solar absorber
calendar 29/09/2014 · 0 Comments

Original story at MIT News The key to creating a material that would be ideal for converting solar energy to heat is tuning the material’s spectrum of absorption just right: It should absorb virtually all wavelengths of light that reach Earth’s surface from the sun — but not much of the rest of the spectrum, since that would increase the energy that is reradiated by the ...
