Silicon Nanoparticles

Nanotechnology breaks down and modifies elements at their molecular level, and new uses have been found for all kinds of materials, including silicon nanoparticles.

Researchers have applied this versatile technology to a wide array of products, and the latest to be enhanced is the silicon solar panel.

Researchers at the University of Illinois worked with several institutions in Saudi Arabia to increase the efficiency and performance of the conventional solar panel, and found that by using nanoparticles of the same material the solar panels were made out of, they could create a thin coating for the panel that would enable it to perform all its normal functions with greater speed and efficiency.
