12 Year Old Boy Invents New Type of Solar Cell
Tell me, now that a kid invented the process for biodegrading plastic and another outtech'd the solar energy community...when are people going to stop assuming age is in direct proportion to knowledge and ability?Now here’s a story that makes me feel profoundly unaccomplished: a 12 year old boy in Beaverton(Terasiel: Teehee), Oregon recently developed a new type of 3D solar cell that makes other solar cells look inefficient by comparison.
William Yuan’s 3D cell can absorb both visible and UV light. According to his calculations, solar panels equipped with his 3D cells could provide 500 times more light absorption than current commercial solar cells and nine times more light than existing 3D solar cells.
