Perfect reflection could help boost the efficiency of concentrated solar power installations, as well as lasers and biological sensors.
Scientists at MIT just announced that they have created the perfect mirror – and it could signal a breakthrough for solar power technology. The team’s “perfect mirror” is capable of reflecting any type of wave — light, sound, or water — with absolutely zero distortion, so it could provide a huge boost to concentrated solar power installations, which use mirrors to focus concentrated beams of sunlight onto a specific area.
