Converting Solar Energy Directly Into Steam ( Solar Thermal Magazine) – In this video, Rice University scientists unveil a revolutionary new technology that uses nanoparticles to convert solar energy directly into steam. This solar steam can be used simply as a heat source, to generate electricity with a steam turbine or even in an absorption chiller to produce cold water or air conditioning.

The new “solar steam” method from Rice’s Laboratory for Nanophotonics is so effective it can even produce steam from icy cold water.

Details of the solar steam method were published online today in ACS Nano. The technology’s inventors said they expect it will first be used in sanitation and water-purification applications in the developing world.
