Accidental Discovery of Almost 100% Efficient Solar Technolo

I like the p-B11 resonance peak at 50 KV acceleration. In2 years we'll know.

Doubt they will get to 100%.

You still have the problem of energy spread. ( 400 to 1200 nm [UV to IR] = 3:1 spread on input energy )

Is the suggestion here to use this technology to capture the energy of the Bremsstrahlung radiation?
Of course nobody gets 100% efficiency at anything. but...
Efficiencies approaching unity would certainly help the energy balance and make the Bremsstrahlung losses into a more tractable problem.

Do we know its spectrum yet?
(Was that the 400 to 1200 nm you mentioned? I though you meant that for solar spectrum.)

Western Washington University had a project a few years back that used photovoltaics tuned to IR to convert combustion heat to electricity to drive an electric car motor. Of course it was made from some gawdawfuly toxic elements. IIRC it was a II-VI compound semiconductor system.

If this Ti-Mo-Plastic system can be tuned to the IR or the far IR the implications for waste heat recovery are staggering.
I mean: so what that the Magrid coils get hot we just recover the IR at "100%" efficiency with photovoltaics and push it back into the coils.
My TANSTAAFL detector is flashing "red-alert" ... "red-alert" ... "red-alert".


[edit another source says Mo-W-"thienyl rings" not Mo-Ti-plastic]
Here is a better article: http://www.laserfocusworld.com/display_ ... efficientl
They say the material covers whole visible spectrum 300-1000nm not 100% efficiency. This is more believable.
I hate the way journalists misunderstand and twist scientific statements.
Actually they do that to all statements as anyone who has been interviewed can attest.

another article, seems to clarify some of it.

I am much more interested in the 10nm side myself. Brem anyone?
