using unused portions of the solar spectrum I

This is the first of what I imagine to be a series of articles on photon conversion, spectrum conversion etc.

These guys at Max Planck Mainz (incidentally my favorite max planck institute) have come up with a way to up-convert the IR-region photons of the solar spectrum to UV-vis range ones, thus using the entire spectrum.

I think spectrum conversion is the obvious next step that materials scientists and chemists need to explore. more soon.
