Extremely cost-effective and efficient solar vapor generation using thermally isolated black paper

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We report an efficient strategy using extremely low-cost materials. Due to the excellent thermal insulation, a record thermal efficiency of ~88% was obtained under one sun without concentration, corresponding to the evaporation rate of 1.28 kg/(m2·h).
