New solar absorber can harness solar radiation for heat and energy

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed a material that can absorb more of the sun’s wavelengths for better conversion of the suns energy to heat. The material is a two-dimensional metallic dielectric photonic crystal that can absorb sunlight from a wide range of angles and withstand extremely high temperatures. It is also cheap and easy to make in large scales. The material was developed to work as part...
