Nano flakes are the work of Dr. Martin Aagesen, a researcher at the University of Copenhagen.
In 2007, Aagesen claimed that he "discovered a perfect crystalline structure" that could allow the harvesting of 30 percent of solar energy directed at a surface [source: Science Daily]. Currently, solar panels, at best, are only able to convert about 15 to 20 percent of sunlight into energy [source: Science Daily]. That inefficiency contributes to the relatively high cost of solar energy production compared to other dirtier forms of energy like coal. More solar panels have to be used (and more silicon used in panel production and more real estate taken up by arrays of panels) to gather an equivalent amount of energy. Aagesen founded a company called SunFlake to develop products based on his discovery. He promises that solar-cell efficiency will be boosted because energy will have shorter distances to travel within the cell and that his panels will be cheaper by using less silicon. As one commentator pointed out, Aagesen produced a highly efficient light collector -- not a fully functioning solar panel that converts light photons to moving electrons (in other words, to energy) [source: Westenhaus]. He still has a long way to go before creating a bleeding-edge, functioning solar array.

While working on his PhD thesis at the University of Copenhagen, Martin Aagesen discovered a new solar cell material with a perfect crystalline structure.
That material has come to be known as nano flakes, and many in the industry believe it could spark a revolution. Aagesen believes nano flakes could potentially convert up to 30 percent of the solar energy they absorb into electricity, in part because their perfect crystalline structure absorbs all light.

Researcher Martin Aagesen, who discovered the light-absorbing nano-flakes, has stated they are a perfect crystalline structure with the potential to convert up to 30 percent of the solar energy that reaches them to electricity, which is twice the amount most panels can convert today.
The discovery of nano-flake materials has received international attention.
