Making Smart Windows Smarter

In a paper published June 30 in Nature EnergyYueh-Lin (Lynn) Loo, Theodora D. '78 and William H. Walton III '74 Professor in Engineering, Professor of Chemical and Biological Engineering and Director of the Andlinger Center for Energy and the Environment and her co-workers describe how they used organic semiconductors for constructing solar cells that are transparent but can be tinted to block 80% of the light under their own power. 

Other coauthors of the work are CBE graduate students Nicholas Davy and Melda Sezen-Edmonds, Jia Gao, a postdoctoral researcher in Loo’s group, Xin Lin, a graduate student in electrical engineering; Amy Liu, an undergraduate in computer science; Nan Yao, director of Princeton’s Imaging and Analysis Center; and Antoine Kahn, the Stephen C. Macaleer ’63 Professor in Engineering and Applied Science and vice dean of Princeton’s School of Engineering and Applied Science. More details about the work and its possible use in smart buildings can be found in this Princeton University news article.
