Scientists develop transparent wood ‘five times more thermally efficient than glass’

The new material, which uses wood from the fast-growing, low-density balsa tree, proves to be more durable and lighter than glass, according to research

See-through solar panel could make “window power plants”

Researchers have made a see-through panel which converts a window – or any other clear surface – into a solar energy generator. Called a “transparent luminescent solar concentrator”, it was made by team of researchers at Michigan State University. The system uses small organic molecules to absorb specific nonvisible wavelengths of sunlight. Richard Lunt, Assistant […]
