Solarzellen aus Fliegenaugen

Wissenschaftler an der PennState University haben eine Solarzelle aus Fliegenaugen gebaut. Ja, aus Fliegenaugen.

First they picked corneas from blowflies because this common type of fly has ideal eyes for solar cell applications. According to a description from PSU, "Blowflies have compound eyes that are roughly hemispherical; but within that half sphere, the surface is covered by macroscale hexagonal eyes with nanoscale features."
