"Impressively, just a 2 µm thick film of nanoneedles results in nearly 100% of light collection efficiency, even for high angles of incidence greater than 75°," Javey told our sister website nanotechweb.
Black nanoneedles for anti-reflective coatings Researchers in the US have succeeded in growing germanium nanoneedle arrays on flexible substrates for the first time.
The germanium nanoneedles have ultrasharp tips that measure just 2 nm across and strongly absorb light.
