    Indian Scientists Discover Substance To Harness Solar Energy From Silk Cocoon

    February 26, 2016 (ND-TV)

    “Indian scientists have discovered a UV-sensitive substance on silk cocoon membranes which converts light into electricity, a finding they say has opened up possibility of designing a bio-solar battery for medicine and also has potential applications in development of third generation solar cells…[The role of photo-electric properties of silk cocoon membrane in pupal metamorphosis: A natural solar cell [reports] a pupa in a silk cocoon senses light…[when] a simple flavonoid molecule on the surface of the cocoon that acts as a UV absorber…[T]he finding has implications for development of third-generation dye-sensitive solar cells…[because the cocoon converts light, especially UV light,] to electricity…[B]y tapping into the properties of silk cocoons, a bio solar battery could be designed…[that could] be essentially low cost due to abundance of silk…” click here for more
