A directory of technologies and resources pertaining to the harvesting of infrared solar energy.
Directory:ERR Fluxgenerator by Noah's Ark Research Foundation – "Has the ability to receive infrared wavelength range from ultraviolet light, ..."
Directory:Konarka's PowerPlastic Photovoltaic Solar > Partnership Pursues Full Spectrum Polymer Solar - Konarka, specializing in their polymer-based thin film solar approach, has agreed to work collaboratively with Evident Technologies, a company that specializes in "quantum dot" development and applications. The research aims to increase the sensitivity of Konarka's plastic cells to a wider range of the light spectrum. (Renewable Energy Access March 29, 2005)
Directory:PaulL:Thermodynamics - Basic introduction on the science of how all matter radiates electromagnetic waves in the far infrared region e.g., 450+ watts per square meter -- aka T-rays (THz rays). Includes very basic experiment to verify this well known and understood science.
Directory:Paintable plastic solar cells using quantum dots - Paintable plastic solar cells that can harness the sun's invisible, infrared rays, and could deliver up to five times the power of the most advanced photovoltaic cells today. Combines specially-designed minute particles called quantum dots, three to four nanometers across, with a polymer to make a plastic that can detect energy in the infrared.
