The new cell is based on a storage system that depends on two hydrocarbons: norbornadiene (NBD) and cudriciclan (QC). The system is created when the light hits a norbornadiene molecule, which causes a reaction that transforms the molecule into quadricyclic. This process, according to the research team, is capable of producing an energy density similar to that of a high-performance battery.
