It is a new technology of generating power that will be using widely around the world. The idea of that cell is the ability of a solar cell to collect the infrared energy and convert it into electricity instead of converting the photon energy from the sun. The infrared photovoltaic solar cells are the best and the newest technology to produce electricity from solar energy. It is going to be using widely in the coming few years.
The best thing with this type of solar panels is its strong ability, it can collect the most of available energy, it can collect up to 80% of the available energy impulses. It will be used in many places and can be very good electricity generator system.
We can use this new technology in home roofs, cars, battery charging, some places in manufacturers and more. It is a bad thing with that technique, it can't be used to power devices and electronics because it can't generate the enough electricity to power those electronic devices.
Anyway, the scientists and the researchers are working hardly to produce a new optimized infrared solar cell that can be used for home and other electronic devices and this would be one of the best scientific achievements in the history.
