Cat eye reflectors to be used for solar energy research
Sunlight reflects off a solar cell and can be used to power an LED or reflector.
The reflector sight allows you to see a solar panel in a dark room and also shows a clear reflection of the sun.
It was designed to help scientists and engineers understand the role solar cells play in the energy supply to the planet.
BBC News looks at the design of the new reflector for the solar panel that will be installed at the University of Cambridge’s Cat Eye Observatory.
Cat eye solar panels are the most energy efficient way to power a solar array.
But some researchers have been concerned about their durability.
This cat eye reflectance, which will be used at Cambridge, will help scientists understand the power sources that solar cells provide to the world, the university says.
The project was supported by the Department for Energy and Climate Change and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council.
The cat eye mirrors are a new type of reflector that is designed to be easy to use, light and cost-effective.
The mirrors are also more energy efficient than the traditional solar panels that have to be attached to a roof, or installed on buildings, to provide power.
The Cambridge team says it has designed the cat eye reflective system to improve the efficiency of solar cells by eliminating the need for expensive mirrors that would be expensive to replace.
“The cat eye reflectsor is one of a number of ways that researchers can improve the energy efficiency of their solar cells, particularly with the introduction of nanoscale solar cells,” said lead author of the paper, Professor Chris Jardine from the Department of Physics and Astronomy.
The Cat Eye is expected to be up and running by 2019, with the first panels due to be installed in 2020. “
We hope that the Cat Eyes reflector will help improve the performance of solar panels by providing a clear, non-reflective, and very cost-efficient way of generating energy for a large number of devices.”

The university is hoping that the reflector can be integrated into future solar cells to give more power to solar panels.
Cambridge has invested in the project, as it plans to increase the number of solar power stations in the UK.
“As the UK has seen a dramatic rise in solar energy generation in recent years, we are keen to help bring down our energy costs and increase the efficiency and affordability of solar,” said Professor Jardina.
“It is important that our research contributes to helping to deliver the benefits of solar energy and we look forward to continuing to work with Cambridge to deliver more power from solar.”
