Using nanostructures, Edgehog’s technology can provide glass surfaces with 99.8% light transmission in the visible and 0.1% reflection. Highly suitable for optical, photovoltaics, laser, displays, all toward energy efficient solution. Because of the gradient define in the glass, the light is not subject to refractive index. It is pure glass, without coating or expensive material on top of it. In term of gain for solar panel application, it can goes up to 20% harnessing energy.
