In contrast to traditional solar modules, solar cells can be installed vertically on the sides of Flexwave’s module. With suitable doping of dye molecules (transparent or any color) and special optical design, the light that shines on the surface is collected and guided to the side of module where the solar cells (of any kind) are installed and covered by silastic waveguiding materials. The bottom can be see-through, resulting in an “invisible” solar module. That’s how various potential applications can be developed to take advantage of this source of wireless, sustainable power.
Here are two examples of our high-transparency modules:
