Photovoltaic Window Color-Conversion Layers

Kevin Prince (Inventor), Lance Wheeler (Inventor)

Research output: Patent


The present disclosure relates to a photovoltaic (PV) device that includes a color-conversion layer that includes at least one of a color-tuning layer and/or an intermediate layer and a photovoltaic layer where the color-conversion layer changes the appearance of the PV device when compared to a similar PV device constructed without the color-conversion layer, the color-conversion layer increases a power output of the PV device by at least one of reflecting light to the PV layer or emitting light which is redirected to the PV layer, and the device is at least partially transparent to light in the visible spectrum.
