[China paint information] imagine that if you paint the periphery of the house with a layer of paint, it can convert light into electricity for household appliances or other equipment in the room, What a wonderful thing it would be. According to the American physicist organization, now, American scientists have developed a cheap solar energy coating, which can use semiconductor nanoparticles quantum dots to generate energy and convert light into electricity, which is expected to enable us to achieve the goal of power generation on the outer wall
the leader of the study Rashat camart, a professor in the Department of chemistry and biochemistry at the University of Notre Dame, said, "we want to change our thinking and go beyond the current silicon-based solar energy technology. We integrate nanoparticles quantum dots that can generate energy into a compound that can be coated, and produce this single coating solar paint, which can be used on any conductive surface without special equipment."
after layers of screening, scientists finally focused on titanium dioxide. They coated the surface of titanium dioxide nanoparticles with cadmium sulfide or cadmium selenide, and then suspended it in the mixed liquid of water and alcohol to produce a paste. When this paste is brushed on the materials that can be inspected by the data transmission tensile machine, including rubber, plastic, wire and cable, optical fiber and cable, safety belt, and safety belt, and exposed to light, it will generate electricity
scientists pointed out that the highest photoelectric conversion efficiency of this new solar cell coating is 1%, which is far lower than the current 10% to 15% conversion rate of commercial silicon-based solar cells. However, they also said: "this kind of paint, which changes linearly, has low manufacturing cost and can be manufactured on a large scale. If the photoelectric conversion efficiency of the screw grip can be further improved, it can truly meet the future energy demand." Kamat and colleagues also plan to further improve the stability of new materials
