Abstract

original image

Transparent luminescent solar concentrators are a new standard for selective light harvesting allowing for non-tinted, transparent, and highly scalable solar windows. These devices are enabled by exploiting phosphorescent hexanuclear nanocrystalline-polymer blends that exhibit massive Stokes-shifts, high phosphorescent quantum yield, high stability, and perfectly tuned absorption/emission around the visible spectrum.
