Phytonics develops optical coatings with a surface micro-texturing inspired by or replicated from plants. Its prime objective is to foster the generation of photovoltaic electric energy by offering cost-effective anti-reflective foils that improve both the sunlight harvesting efficiency and the aesthetics of solar modules, irrespective of their location and orientation. The multifunctional coatings designed by Phytonics can also benefit to many other indoor and outdoor applications, for which outstanding light management properties are required.
