Painting solar Bloo
With 10 million tiny, inexpensive nano-bristles per square centimeter, stealthy startup Bloo thinks it can make lots of green.
A small team in Sacramento, California that has been working stealthily for three years has joined the fray of companies applying nanotechnology to help make solar photovoltaics more efficient.
Bloo Solar [ed.: spelled correct] plans to use billions of nano-structured photovoltaic cells to capture light and boost the overall daily power output of solar modules.
By increasing the amount of light captured using vertical nano structures it calls "bristles," Bloo plans to enable modules to generate twice as much power as they do over an entire day today, at dramatically lower materials and systems costs.
