Hi, I just noticed this on instructable
http://www.instructables.com/id/TRIPLE-YOUR-SOLAR-ARRAYS-OUTPUT/
I am wondering, since reading the comments the author doesn't look like is willing to do more testing, and I don't have any solar cells to give it a try mysel, what do you guyst think about it.. will the power output increase with this configuration given the same or even less area used for the array ?

Hi

Nonsense.

That is a joke, right?

My BS meter didn't go off-scale, it spun around at least 3x ...

The Soulman:
It even made my browser crash, cant believe what people claim to have invented.  :-//

Someone:
A lot of work went into improving the absorptance of solar cells (minimising the reflection of useful light) and micro texturing of the surface looked like this on a small scale, but there aren't big gains left to be made until cheap multi-junction devices arrive.
