Pairing of Near-UV Solar Cells with Electrochromic Windows for Smart Management of the Solar Spectrum

The various wavelengths of the solar spectrum can be exploited for different functionalities. We have developed an organic solar cell that harvests near-ultraviolet photons to power an electrochromic device that controls how many photons go through a smart window in other wavelength ranges, adjusting both visible light and heat ingress.
