Capturing Energy with Nanotechnology - Solar & Wind

Capturing Energy with Nanotechnology - Solar & Wind

A small type of concentrator can capture sun light for local usage. A luminescent solar concentrator is a sunlight harvesting technology that changes the way we think about energy. It could turn any window into a daytime power source. In these devices, a fraction of light transmitted through the window is absorbed by nanosized particles (semiconductor quantum dots) dispersed in a glass window. The light is then re-emitted at the infrared wavelength invisible to the human eye, and wave-guided to a solar cell at the edge of the window. With this process, a virtually transparent window becomes an electrical generator, one that can power a room’s air conditioner on a hot day or a heater on a cold one.
