New Measurement System Could Improve Solar Energy Efficiency

A versatile new measurement system has been devised that can accurately and quickly measure the electric power output of solar energy devices. These abilities are very useful to the development and manufacture of next-generation solar energy cells.


Researchers from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) created the new system hoping to aid in the development of machines that will more efficiently and cost-effectively convert sunlight, something greatly needed if a quick reduction in carbon pollution is going to occur.
