Pentagonal Moleculs nanomaterials

In recent times has begun to think not so much in the materials used for the production of solar panels, but rather in its design, using from the striking form of Swiss cheese, until new eye-catching designs that seek to achieve greater energy efficiency without thinking of a high cost of production.

Another example of this is the work presented by researchers at the University of Cambridge who are developing nano materials that could even assemble itself by establishing solar thin plate panels (technology in mouths of all these days) and applicable to electronic devices with smaller dimensions to the current.
Design leads to create molecules with pentagonal symmetry which can relocate randomly using a substrate of copper, which gives rise to thin plates of a very high stability, which could be used in future in creating from processors for computers to other types of circuits, as a photovoltaic solar panel.
In addition to providing a very good energy efficiency, they also have the advantage of requiring the use of very little material, cheaper costs and offering the same amount of energy.
