A research team led by Professor Seunghyup Yoo of the Electrical Engineering School, KAIST and Professor Nam-Gyu Park of the Chemical Engineering School at Sungkyunkwan University developed a solar cells technology. This semi-transparent perovskite solar cells demonstrate high-power conversion efficiency and transmit visible light while blocking infrared light, making them great candidates for solar windows. This result was published as a cover article in the July 20, 2016 issue of "Advanced Energy Materials" and has been reported in mutiple press sources in Korea. The research paper is entitled “Empowering Semi-transparent Solar Cells with Thermal-mirror Functionality.”    Press Release link YTN: Joongang Daily: KAIST:   Paper link:   [[{"fid":"4398","view_mode":"default","type":"media","attributes":{"height":"482","width":"1178","class":"media-element file-default"}}]]
