Researchers all over the world are trying to improve upon the shortcomings of non conventional energy sources. We know that sunlight energy is captured by solar panels and then this energy gets transformed into electricity for our use. Efforts are continuously on to improve the existing solar panels and trap as much solar energy as is possible and minimize the loss.
In the 70s researchers were trying to use colored solar panels to capture maximum sunlight, contain it and ultimately transform it into electricity. But what happened really was loss-absorption-reemission cycle. Once the sunlight is trapped inside, it again can be reabsorbed by another dye molecule on its exit. If more of the sunlight found its way out of the glass panel and lost then naturally the convertible efficiency would be low. Scientists are concerned with sunlight transmitted to the edge of the glass panel. Until now there has been no viable solution to this persistent problem.
