Gallery: Scientists Create New Solar Energy Technology That Creates Ste...


Solar technology is beginning to heat up, thanks to researchers at Rice’s Laboratory for Nanophotonics (LANP). Scientists have developed a method of solar thermal heating that generates steam at the nanoparticle level. The new “solar steam” process is so efficient that vapor can be created from icy cold water. In addition to electricity generation, the new technique also has applications in water purification and sanitation.
