  • A coating for solar power generation that can replace silicon

    At present, some kind of “magic” coating can be used to replace “silicon” in solar power generation.If it hits the market, it could significantly reduce the cost of solar power and bring the technology into everyday use. Using solar panels to absorb the sun’s rays, a...
