Researchers have developed a material that works like a luminescent solar concentrator and can even be applied to textiles. This opens up numerous possibilities for producing energy directly where it is needed, i.e. in the use of everyday electronics.Associated journal article: Chieh-Szu Huang, Konrad Jakubowski, Sebastian Ulrich, Sergii Yakunin, Michèle Clerc, Claudio Toncelli, René M.
