As we travel along the 25 mph traffic, he discusses the idea of cars operated on solar energy. My mind went ablaze and I could not help but think of the wonders of cars run solely on the energy of the massive sun. Not only will America be moving more advance than other countries, internationally, but the need to dig for oil will lessen tremendously, the necessity for citizens to pay the continuous raising gas prices will disappear. The question however is, how to do it? The solar panel, is able to work through solar modules using light energy, or photons, from the sun to generate electricity through the photovoltaic effect. The photovoltaic effect is the creation of voltage or electric current in a material upon exposure to light. A research conducted by Imperial College, London has improved a way of making solar panels much more efficient by studding the light-receiving semiconductor surface with aluminum nano-cylinders which are fairly similar to the ridges o...
