Ancient Pigment Can Boost Energy Efficiency

Egyptian blue, derived from calcium copper silicate, was routinely used on ancient depictions of gods and royalty. Previous studies have shown that when Egyptian blue absorbs visible light, it then emits light in the near-infrared range. Now a team led by Berkeley Lab researchers has confirmed the pigment’s fluorescence can be 10 times stronger than previously thought. More>
