Although this may be partly true for the visible spectrum of light from the sun, it must also be considered that the sun gives out radiations beyond the band of light visible to the human eye. Therefore, even see-through solar concentrators can successfully harvest energy from sunlight. Now, a team of Michigan Read more [...]
