Much of the infrared light from the sun is too low in energy to be absorbed by traditional solar cells. To harvest the lost solar energy, we develop a solid-state device that turns infrared photons into visible ones, a phenomenon called photon upconversion. Our device makes use of special interactions among excited inorganic nanocrystals and organic molecules.
