NovaSolix is developing rectifying carbon nanotube antennas that convert light to electricity from the entire solar spectrum.

Article



There have been a few universities that have done work similar to NovaSolix's technology. Georgia Tech described a forest of carbon nanotube bundles connected to MoC diodes in a paper called "A carbon nanotube optical rectenna" in 2015.



Researchers from California Institute of Technology described an asymmetric MoC diode in "Ultrafast metal-insulator-multi-wall carbon nanotube tunneling diode employing asymmetrical structure effect" in 2016. A third paper, "Towards Rectennas for Solar Energy Harvesting" described constructing a patch antenna array interconnected with large MiiC diodes. These approached show theoretical ability to get to over 80% conversion efficiency with full wave rectification compared to the Shockley-Queisser limit of 33.7% efficiency for traditional single silicon junction solar cells.
