The research team has completed the development and testing of a device that can turn the contrast between shadow and light into electricity.
In fact, it is a unique generator based on the shadow effect. The device is called SEG. Between the parts of its surface on which photons fall at different intensities, a potential difference arises, and this, in turn, acts as a prerequisite for the emergence of an electric current.
One of the key design features of the device is the presence on it of a set of cells located on a transparent flexible film of a polymeric material. This film is coated with a silicon wafer.
Research on the development is ongoing, but now experts say that SEG is at least twice as effective as many solar panels familiar to many.
