Metallic Nano-antenna arrays for light sensing and harvesting of solar energy

Organization: 

Ramot at Tel Aviv University, anemia, IL

I.P. Brief: 

Using the electromagnetic properties of solar radiation, we construct an array of nanometer size antennas connected to ultrafast rectifying diodes for useful generation of direct current for generating electrical power. Efficiency of over 80% is possible. The entire solar spectrum may be utilized at low cost.
