SANTA BARBARA, USA: Solar3D Inc., the developer of a breakthrough 3-dimensional solar cell technology to maximize the conversion of sunlight into electricity, has announced details of its plan for the development of the company’s solar cell.
“Our research, analysis, and experimentation to date have allowed us to outline our development process and timetable with a high degree of confidence,” said Jim Nelson, CEO of Solar3D. “We are ahead of the original schedule that we set for ourselves in terms of timing and expected output.”
Inspired by light management techniques used in fiber optic devices, the company’s innovative solar cell technology utilizes a 3-dimensional design to trap sunlight inside micro-photovoltaic structures where photons bounce around until they are converted into electrons. The company’s management believes that this breakthrough solar cell will dramatically change the economics of solar energy.
