4 Uses For This Type of Wave

  • Gives The body Vitamin D (To much could cause skin cancer)

  • Sanitation and Disinfection

  • Fluorescence And Lighting

  • Astronomy

What is this technology you ask?

RAYCREA is an improvement to sustainable power sources. Conversion wavelength technology, as it is categorized on Nitto's website. Before this year UV light has been an invisible force that just burns the skin over time, now it can be transformed into Sunlight. Which in doing so, scientists created sheets in RAYCREA to convert and transform into energy. Efficiency is up 95% with the conversion and it has become highly energy efficient. RAYCREA is going to be used as a brand new product (with some development ahead) and also an addition to power plants current PV sheets.

Materials Used: UV light source, sunlight, Grid board (As shown below) RAYCREA paper sheet(Can be found on website if clicked on) Absorbents, and High Fluorescence quantum yield. All together they form the board below with is filled with individual RAYCREA sheets. Breakdown of the sheet is shown above.

Discovery Date: 2014/February/23

Group That Introduced it: Nitto Denko Corporation

This technology impacts the world by creating and improved way for power generation using UV waves. It increases power of a regular encapsulating sheet by 2% more in a regular PV model. By turning UV waves into Visible Light it captures the lost energy when using regular PV sheets. This is the first time ever scientists have converted UV into Visible light while in the process creating an energy efficient, sustainable power source. There is room for development for the future.
