Solar energy that doesn’t block the view

A team of researchers at Michigan State University has developed a new type of solar concentrator that when placed over a window creates solar energy while allowing people to actually see through the window. It is called a transparent luminescent solar concentrator and can be used on buildings, cell phones and any other device that has a clear surface. And, according to Richard Lunt of MSU’s College of Engineering, the key word is “transparent.”

New York City - Skyline Sunset - Brooklyn Bridge and Lower Manhattan
—-
Those were
the sunsets,
the ones
where the city
held the sun
in its palms,
holding on to
summer’s warmth
for as long as it could;
cupped palms
full of light,
and promise
of days
without end
and nights
that barely
dreamed
of autumn.

* This was taken with my Sony A7 while balancing on sea-legs on a boat whizzing past the New York City skyline at sunset, an experience I highly recommend.
