Material Allow Solar Windows to Block Heat and Generate Electricity

sIn a promising development for smart photovoltaic windows, researchers led by Peidong Yang have developed a perovskite solar window that can produce electricity while switching back and forth between opaque and crystalline states, depending on how hot the weather is. The transitions occur seamlessly, without sacrificing performance, as prior technologies did. More>
