Nanosolar Spray-on Technology. A Solar Powered Electric Aircraft. Velocity SE, the summary..

Nanosolar Spray-on Technology

Our research group has invented a very unique nanosolar paint, which can convert visible light, infrared light, ultraviolet light, x-rays, gamma-rays, and any magnetic fields or electromagnetic fields into electric power. This nanosolar material is eight* times more efficient than regular solar cell technology. It can harvest energy on a cloudy day or even at night-time. Moreover, this nanosolar material allows to absorb static electricity from a friction of the airflow and convert it into usable energy.

A Solar Powered Electric Aircraft.

The nanosolar material looks like a plastic and can be sprayed on any surface like a regular paint. The surface of an electric aircraft painted with this nanosolar material can collect enough energy to charge its batteries. Thus, the aircraft power is generated from two sources: the solar source from a very wide range of solar light and the static one.

In addition, our research group has invented a unique power saver. Installing the power saver means having at your disposal approximately twice the amount of the energy supplied by the sun and the wind combined. It acts as a catalyst to double the power generation in the embedded solar cell via a highly efficient electric motor.

This solar powered electric aircraft does not require any extra fuel to keep it flying. Because of its unique nanosolar spray-on technology, the aircraft batteries would completely self-charge.

Velocity SE, Summary:
■a very unique nanosolar technology - the material of the paint, which converts visible light, infrared light, ultraviolet light, x-rays, gamma-rays, and any magnetic fields or electromagnetic fields into electric power;
■a very unique electric circuit (scheme) - the design of wiring and radio details of the power saver, which extends distance on one charge more than two and a half times;
■a very unique power pack (energy storage) - LiFePO4 polymer batteries integrated with the power saver;
■a very unique electric motors - capability to use DC and AC in the same time that makes the motor extremely powerful and easy to control (to operate).

If we can print solar panels on an inkjet, surely we can spray it on.

BS. That's what I was thinking as well. Someone fishing for stupid investment backers.

I'd have to call BS on this one, too...sounds like "magic" to me. Even though it might in theory be possible for the same coating to pick up all those energies, there's not enough useful energy in some of them to help significantly for the power levels they are talking about in a plane such as the one pictured.

Assuming it works like solar cells do, one could indeed paint the whole thing on, with the metal of the vehicle as the base conductor (assuming it's an aluminum aircraft, or similar), and then paint on "collector" lines to become the other electrical pole. Alternately, paint it on in segments, over an isolated metallic coating, to make seriesable cells. But I'm pretty sure based on their other claims that even though in theory it *could* work, they don't have any such thing.

Speaking of magic...I wonder if the person took their name from this book about the history of magic and experimental science:

if you look at the highlighted stuff, on opposing columns of text one ends in "Alex" and the other starts with "tury". :lol:

Lets see... current solar can be over 20% efficient. 8 times that is 160% efficient... WOW! perpetual motion! No more of those pesky laws of thermodynamics. Sign me up for a couple of megabucks investment.

iv heard of spray on solar, and its mega problem is that it does not last.. the environment is to harsh for it..

and yea 8 times.. more than 100 %

Well, somewhere in the zone between BS and heavy spin for sure. In a way, thin film solar is not much different. But no way the wings of an airplane make enough power to take it far.

I'd say it's about in the same category as a solar powered bike with a 15w panel on the handlebars. Sure, park it for a month, and you get the battery charged.

These are all technologies that exist or are being worked on but.... sounds like some one did a little googling and made up a miracle product that does everything. Sounds like the paint in the stephen baxter sci fi novel transcendent.

Yes i also have an amazing idea, use the worlds atomic bombs to create an inland sea in Australia, basically dividing it in 2, and then use the water in the new sea to make soya plantations to power the entire world.

Please send your investment to zzoing@paypal.com thankyou

Looks like Nunzio LaVecchia is still planning to release a car next year with a similar paint. I guess we will see!

"Latest" info on this site all appears from 2009-2010... then nothing. Any 3rd party reports they are moving fwd really?

Tech sounds amazing...
Thin film

The NLV Quant is coated with a thin film made of pyrite, which converts light into electricity to supply the operating electronics and also support the battery. This innovative pyrite technology is cost-effective, efficient and ecological.

NLV Solar AG has developed an iron-sulphur composite semiconductor using digital prototyping, with very promising results. The research indicates:
•an average photovoltaic conversion efficiency of 38%, depending on ambient conditions, and a peak performance of over 50%
•the possibility of fine-tuning the material’s absorption characteristics by modification of its crystal lattice structure using ion implantation; stacked in a multilayer thin-film cell, it would be possible to tune each layer to a different target absorption frequency
•as a thin-film cell, the material could be applied to substrates in a transparent, semi-transparent or tinted coating
•the projected degradation coefficient is only 5–6% over 20 years
Possibly just another Fools Gold...

melanin pigments give our skins color
takes energy from the "sun" and coverts it
you can also use melamin harvested from high altitude mushrooms
which can grow in total "darkness"
in gratzel cells (dye-sensitized solar cell, DSSC) which use pigment and titanium dioxide (sand, used in toothpaste and white paint)
usually you use a red dye in the gratzel cell

if you use melamin in the DSSC the "solar" cells work at night
al-be-it at very low "reported" efficiency

now if they spray on a new paint (from stealth planes) with a magnitude higher surface area (if you H.I. Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation certain material..hella become true black and capture all light)....
spray pigment
spray clear coat

this technology will not be released :mrgreen:
