Make the light energy conversion into electricity more efficient and attractive by reducing its price and by increasing its aesthetic appeal.
About Optical Additives GmbH
Convert any surface into a solar cell
New dimensions in light energy conversion: Flexible in shape, color and application
Optical Additives GmbH's product ZeoFRET® is a brand new, revolutionary additive for transparent polymers. These polymers then serve as a light harvester. The harvested light is transferred to a solar cell and transformed into electricity.
This material may be used to cast or to coat the body of any device with small embedded solar cells which then as a whole collects and transforms concentrated light.
Light energy conversion solutions with ZeoFRET® are
- more flexible, because device shapes can be chosen freely with many color options
- more effective, because the whole surface of the device body collects light
- simpler, because mixing additives to polymers is a well-known technology
- cheaper, because fewer solar cells are needed
