Glass that isn't glass... It's the future of energy use!

At first glance it looks like ordinary window glass. Pure deception. It's glass, yes, but coated with a thin layer of a transparent material that captures invisible sunlight and converts it into visible radiation ideal for powering photovoltaic cells. Developed at Universidade de Aveiro (UAveiro), in the laboratories of the Department of Physics and CICECO - Aveiro Institute of Materials, the film contains photonic converters and can be applied to more sustainable energy buildings.
