SOLAR PANEL COULD GENERATE ELECTRICITY EVEN BY NIGHT

Context and News

University of California explained how a new kind of thermoradiative cell could design an anti-solar panel to generate power at night

Details

  • According to a study published in the ACS Photonics, it is possible to design solar panels that can produce energy during the night
  • A regular solar cell generates power when it absorbs photons of light from the sun to generate a voltage across the device for the current to flow.
  • However, in these specially designed photovoltaic cells, light is instead emitted to generate current and voltage, which go in the opposite direction but still produce energy
  • The drawback of these “anti-solar cells” or thermoradiative cells, at the moment, is that the electricity produced is way lower than the power generated by the conventional solar cells
