Professor Hele Savin, Leader of the black cell project

 

A joint project between the Aalto University of  Finland and the Universitat Politècnica of Catalunya, demonstrated that black silicon solar cells in Helinski in the winter can generate considerably more electricity than traditional cells: a whopping 4% increase in daily energy production   The nanostructuring of silicon surfaces—known as black silicon—is a promising approach to eliminate  reflection in photovoltaic devices without the need for a conventional antireflection coating. This might lead to both
