A US-India patent has the potential to dramatically lower the cost of a conventional solar panel, and also reduce its power consumption by 10 times, an advance that could significantly reduce the use of fossil fuels in the country.
The solar panel is made from a porous silicon-dioxide (SiO 2 ) layer that can absorb solar radiation and convert it to electricity.
But, until now, the materials required to make such a solar panel have come from China, India, Brazil, Taiwan and other Asian countries.
To make the device, a metal substrate is layered on top of a porous SiO 2 layer.
When the metal substrate dries, the silicon-containing layer becomes solid and the porous SiOS layer becomes a polymer layer.
The polymer layer is then melted, and the SiO2 layer is heated, creating a solar cell.
The heat from the solar cell then produces heat that the solar panel can use to generate electricity.
This process can create a thermal energy density that is 10 times lower than that of conventional silicon solar cells, according to the company that filed the patent.
The patent also describes a device that converts the heat generated by the solar cells into electrical energy, similar to how a water heater converts water into steam.
If the solar panels cost $300,000, it could save the average American household more than $50,000 a year in energy costs.
But if they cost $2,500, it will save the typical household $1,200 in electricity bills, the company said.
The company said it has filed the patents in the US, India and China, and expects to have them licensed in the coming months.
In a phone interview, Amit Gopal, the president of the company, said the company is working with an international team of researchers, who are working on an improved version of the patent, which will be ready by next year.
The process involves coating the SiOS material with an alloy of silicon and aluminum oxide.
The alloy, known as “aluminum-silicon-copper,” is made up of a thin layer of the aluminum oxide, which is then chemically bonded to the silicon.
This layer is added to the substrate, which can then be heated to create the solar energy.
The metal substrate then gets coated with a thin coating of silicon-silica-carbon (Si-Si-C), which is added next.
The result is a thin silicon-SiO2 film.
This film is then coated with aluminum-silicene, which provides a thermal conductivity similar to silicon solar panels.
The aluminum-SiOS layer is sandwiched between the aluminum-Silicene layer and the silicon substrate.
This is called “stacking.”
This results in a film of the material that is both thin and strong, allowing for a low thermal conductive coating that also offers high solar energy density.
Gopal said the process can also be used to produce solar cells that are thinner than 10 nanometers, which are more efficient than traditional silicon solar modules.
A typical solar panel weighs around 40 to 60 grams, he said.
Gopol said he is developing a new type of solar panel that will be about 3 percent less efficient than the existing type.
“We have to replace all of the materials from China with ours,” Gopal told the Associated Press.
“And that’s really not feasible, because they have a lot of technology and they have to make these components.
Gopal noted that the technology that he is working on is based on a single-step process that requires a single layer of material. “
There is a big need to replace the materials that are used in solar cells and solar panels with cheaper materials.”
Gopal noted that the technology that he is working on is based on a single-step process that requires a single layer of material.
“It is a two-step approach,” he said, adding that the process is similar to that used in semiconductors.
The technology, called the “bio-acoustic method,” also uses silicon-Silicon Oxide-Silica Coating, or SiSO 2 for short, to improve the efficiency of the solar material.
The coating was developed by the researchers at the Institute of Materials Science and Technology, or INSEAD, in Paris, France.
The researchers said in the patent application that the coating can be applied to any SiO-siliceous substrate, from silicon to silicon-gold and from silicon-Silver to Si-Si.
“A large portion of the power is lost when the solar substrate is exposed to heat, and thermal losses in the substrate can be substantial,” the researchers wrote.
“In our approach, we can use the solar surface to heat the substrate so that it becomes a material with a higher thermal conductance, thereby reducing the energy loss during heating and drying of the substrate.”
The researchers also said that they can increase the thermal conductivities by adding the Si-Silacene layer to the aluminum substrate.
The layer has the same thermal conduct
