    Solar panels made from ice.
    I recently heard of this concept. Does anyone have information or links to explore it further?

    Ice is a semiconductor that moves electric potential via protons instead of electrons. Can anyone elaborate of this and its implications?

    First of all... wouldn't ice melt before turning light into anything?

    Second, You need a semiconductor material to turn light into electrical current, not just ice.

    And third, you can't move protons instead of electrons (you can only assume this as a reference for some calculus, but that's all)

    i think you mean crystals. The point is that light will take trought a greater surface and can be reflected back in another wavelenght, the advantage is that you can get a lot more efficiency from this collector.

    The problem is, i don't have a clue what material that should be...

    Got a headdace now thanks :P

    ice spend recived energy alot less than metal that heated on same sun. Point is he saided via protons,
    that is Electrotehnical term cause PN junction work of making electrons and so caled "WHOLES" whole is just
    missed electron in Chemical conection of a atom, but it have same potencial of proton in reference on DIPOL
    state electron-proton that is electro neutral. that what he ment ja but solar paner generate power in diference
    on temperature betwine in fact 2 diferent metal panels but allso resistance betwine that 2 panels is SMALLL
    and resistance of ice is big! but if u enrichen ice with conductive elements u create more dipols that reduce
    number of wholes and again u get less carier of electricity that make tunel effect of inside spending of
    electricity and making temperature inside ice it just dog chasing a tail, far away for comercial use !!!
