Green plants have the particularity of using solar radiation directly to create their own energy. Known technologies used on solar panels arrive to transform a very small part of the percussion radiation into usable energy, unlike plants. Mr. Prof. Dr. Dirk Guldi of the Chair of Physical Chemistry I of the University of Erlangen-Nurnberg has developed a new device that replaces the crystalline silicon layers serving
has hitherto collect radiation through pipes to scale the carbon nanometer. The mini pipes will be fitted with molecular ATTACHED particles to look like microscopic branches with tiny leaves.
Mini carbon pipes are made of a single layer Rolled carbon atom form a long hollow cylinder has a hexagonal structure. molecules of groups can be fixed on the outer wall with the aid of molecular hook, and a chain of hooks, a kind of ferrocene, a
complex carbon rings around an iron atom, or porphyrin, a molecular class close to the chemical chlorophyll. These two kinds of constituent parts have a trend of surplus electrons and can easily let go of an electron.
When the light hits the mini pipe, a negative load animated by photons moves "leaves" to the stem. Before the device returns to its initial state, there is enough time to divert the electrons displaced and use them. First the necessary bases
development of solar panels constructed using mini carbon pipes changes are thus in place.
