Inspired by moths' eyes, scientists have created new technology that may help improve the efficiency of thin-film solar cells (Photo: Shutterstock)
Because moths need to use every little bit of light available in order to see in the dark, their eyes are highly non-reflective. This quality has been copied in a film that can be applied to solar cells, which helps keep sunlight from being reflecting off of them before it can be utilized. Now, a new moth eye-inspired film may further help solar cells become more efficient.
