National laboratory scales up quantum-dot solar windows that can power entire buildings

Imagine a future where a building's energy comes from its windows. Many scientists have worked towards that future in the lab, but now five scientists from Los Alamos National Laboratory have demonstrated solar window technology can indeed be scaled up. Instead of palm-sized models, they created solar windows large enough to power entire buildings. "Luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs)" are a key component of the team's solar windows," according to a statement from the National Laboratory.
