Description
Light is energy. Sunlight can be harnessed by solar cells, for instance, turning light into electricity, which can, in turn, be used to power big and small devices. This is, however, a rather inefficient process and light can be used differently for various applications. One way to efficiently use light is through a photothermal material, which converts light into heat. Heat is an important user of fossil fuels: industrial processes for instance consume vast quantities of fossil fuels. It has been reported that 4.2% of worldwide delivered energy is consumed manufacturing basic inorganic, organic, and agricultural chemicals. Of this 17 quadrillion Btu, 78% comes ...
