Quotes

Such panels could be placed in lakes and oceans and could generate hydrogen from water using solar energy. "It's a concept that you could use to build a plant that produces hydrogen fuels. The factory could be on land or on a body of water" Wang says
The brief for the packaging was to "give premium value to a low-cost material by means of a sophisticated design and a glass-effect finish, capable of combining the unbreakability, lightweight and low-cost advantages of PET with concepts of elegance, character and refined simplicity"
"A carefully designed layer of silica glass would not degrade the performance of the solar cell, but it would enhance radiation at the predetermined thermal wavelengths to send the solar cell's heat away more effectively" Fan concluded
"Polarization doesn't give you a specific direction," like the magnetic field indicating which way is north and which is south, said Greif, "so the bats who were confused disappeared either 90 degrees left or 90 degrees right."
