Israeli Reports on His Invention to Convert Solar Energy to Steam

Dr. Harry Tabor, director of Israel’s National Physical Laboratory has invented a one-way mirror which will convert solar energy to steam thus bringing solar electric power within the range of technology, he stated today in an interview.

Dr. Tabor, who does not foresee use of his method for the production of low cost electricity through steam turbines, believes that it can be used for heating or cooling homes for making fresh water from salt and for providing low pressure steam for paper production and other industrial uses.
