New way to absorb electromagnetic radiation demonstrated

Posted by External 227 days ago General
http://www.sciencedaily.com — It is possible to fully absorb electromagnetic radiation using an anisotropic crystal, report scientists. Electromagnetic energy harvesting in the visible spectrum is very important for photovoltaics -- the conversion of solar energy into direct current electricity. Absorbing materials in the microwave range of frequencies have an application that is equally as important, say scientists who are n Read More
