ASME SmartBrief | Aug 23, 2016

Solar thermal energy converters, generators that capture and use heat from the sun, have greater potential than solar cells for efficient, low-cost energy production. Preventing heat loss through conduction or convection is the key, and researchers at the UK's University of Bristol have developed a three-layer sandwich with carbon and gold that effectively accomplishes this.
