How Blu-ray discs can improve solar panels

Blu-ray discs could help make the solar cells used in solar panels more efficient, researchers say.

Solar cells rely on materials that convert photons of light into electricity. Prior research had revealed that if microscopic structures that are only nanometers (billionths of a meter) high are placed on the surface of solar cells, they can scatter light in ways that increase the cells' efficiency.
