UV solar cells

UV solar cells

Japan's National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) has succeeded in developing a transparent solar cell that uses ultraviolet (UV) light to generate electricity but allows visible light to pass through it.

Most conventional solar cells use visible and infrared light to
generate electricity. Used to replace conventional window glass, the installation surface area could be large, leading to potential uses that take advantage of the combined functions of power generation, lighting and temperature control.
Also, easily fabricated PEDOT:PSS photovoltaic cells are ultraviolet light selective and sensitive
