Twelve-year-old invents twice as efficient solar panel.

William Yuan, 12, from Beaverton, Oregon, has impressed scientists and engineers with his innovative idea for a three dimensional solar panel for both visible and ultra violet light. His idea can absorb as much as 500 times the light of commercially available solar cells and up to nine times the light of advanced 3D cells. If his idea can be commercially produced it could produce twice the amount of electricity as the best existing solar panels. He has also developed an idea for at solar tower and software to simulate and optimize the performance of the towers. William Yuan has been awarded a USD 25,000:- scholarship by The Davidson Institute for Talent Development. He is also looking for a manufacturer for his new solar cells. brbr
