Juvenile raccoons made a late-night appearance at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory. This was the only time they were seen, and their parents didn't seem to be around. Raccoons are rarely visible during daylight hours at the Lab. #wildlife #raccoons

New Solar Panels That Work At Night

Despite the enormous untapped potential of solar energy, one thing is for sure- photovoltaics are only as good as the sun's rays shining upon them. However, researchers at the Idaho National Laboratory are close to the production of a super-thin solar film

New Solar Panels That Work At Night

new solar power technology -- The nanoantennas are thus able to harvest energy both during daytime hours and into the early evening. Because they can take in energy from both sunlight and the earth’s heat, the nanoantennas have a much higher efficiency (and potential applicability) than conventional solar cells.
