Title
(EN) THREE-DIMENSIONAL METAMATERIAL DEVICE WITH PHOTOVOLTAIC BRISTLES
(FR) DISPOSITIF EN MÉTAMATÉRIAU TRIDIMENSIONNEL À POILS PHOTOVOLTAÏQUES
Abstract
(EN) The systems, methods, and devices of the various embodiments provide a photovoltaic cell made up of an array of photovoltaic bristles. The photovoltaic bristles may be configured individually and in an array to have a high probability of photon absorption. The high probability of photon absorption may result in high light energy conversion efficiency.
(FR) Les systèmes, procédés et dispositifs selon les divers modes de réalisation de la présente invention se rapportent à une cellule photovoltaïque constituée d'un ensemble de poils photovoltaïques. Lesdits poils photovoltaïques peuvent être conçus individuellement et dans un ensemble de sorte à présenter une probabilité élevée d'absorption de photons. La probabilité élevée d'absorption de photons peut permettre d'obtenir une efficacité élevée de conversion d'énergie lumineuse.
