How can Electrowetting Lenses improve solar efficiency?



  1. 0 Votes

    At its most basic design, solar cells operate at designated angles to capture the most light at any given time. To help solar panels capture solar power dynamically, electrowetting, most likely using flouropolymers, is applied to the hydrophobic surface. As a voltage is applied between the surface and the liquid, a “prism” is created at that contact point between the materials. Varying the voltage changes the contact point, thus allowing for the panels to dynamically capture solar energy throughout the day.
