Graphene Solar Thermal Film Could Be a New Way to Harvest Renewable Energy

Nancy J. Delong

Scientists at the Heart for Translational Atomaterials (CTAM) at Swinburne University of Technological know-how in Melbourne, Australia, have developed a new graphene-based film that can soak up daylight with an efficiency of about 90 percent, whilst concurrently reducing most IR thermal emission loss—the initially time this kind of a feat has been described.

The result is an successful solar heating metamaterial that can heat up promptly to 83 degrees C (181 degrees F) in an open setting with nominal heat reduction. Proposed programs for the film incorporate thermal vitality harvesting and storage, thermoelectricity technology, and seawater desalination.
