Sunvalley Solar has filed the US Patent on technology that effectively increases the efficiency of solar panels.
The US Patent on technology is entitled ‘New Solar Cell Structure with Increased Efficiency’.
The Sunvalley patented solar cell is less affected by the spectral wavelength, angle, and/or polarization of the incident light due to an array of nanostructures with space varying periodicity and orientation.
Sunvalley Solar CTO Fang Xu said that the technology the company patented can potentially be commercialized for solar panel manufacturing allowing an increase in the efficiency of solar cells while at the same time reducing their cost.
"We will continue to work closely with our partners at UCSD (University of California, San Diego) and with research institutes in China to innovate the solar energy industry," Xu said.
