Abstract

Near-infrared (NIR) harvesting transparent luminescent solar concentrators (TLSC) with non-tinted transparency are demonstrated by exploiting the excitonic nature of organic luminescent salts that provide perfectly tuned NIR-selective absorption and even deeper NIR emission. NIR TLSCs provide an entirely new route to more aesthetically pleasing light harvesting systems that can be widely deployed in energy scavenging windows and displays.
