Bacterial processes in the depths of oceans could help to develop efficient solar cells

Deep sea

Nature is always a good source of inspiration for not only artists but also for scientists. It helped a lot in getting the best results. Now the researchers from University of Cambridge have used another natural phenomenon to make advancements in the field of solar energy utilization.

Researchers have studied the light capturing properties of the proteins of the Green Sulfur Bacteria, which are usually found in depths, sometimes below 2 kilometers, in oceans where light reaches in minute amounts. In some cases, these bacteria have the ability to utilize the 100% of the tiny amount of light by photosynthesis to produce electricity. Read more…
