3D solar cells capture more sunlight, boost solar panel efficiency

Scientists in Georgia have a prototype 3D solar panel which can capture sunlight from nearly every angle and transform it into electricity. The panels use nanotechnology and are shaped like city buildings. It also has a thicker coating so it absorbs more sunlight.


The bottom line is ...

The prototype is 3D and can absorb more sunlight and transform it into more electricity.
