The patented Spectral™ coating appears opaque, but it actually allows 80% or more of the light to pass through it to whatever is behind it.
Spectral™ light energy harvesters are created by combining state-of-the-art, powerful photovoltaic (PV) films with the extremely thin, rugged Spectral™ coating that can produce virtually any color, pattern or texture.
Spectral™ combined with a light harvester and sensors can make IoT wireless controls and sensors blend in seamlessly with their environment or look like almost any object, while being powered by ambient light. Spectral™ security sensors will be nearly impossible to visually detect..
Spectral™ research partially funded by a grant from the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Center for Innovative Technology is expected to be completed by mid-2019, which should enable licensing discussions for the hundreds of Spectral™ applications and with coatings manufacturers to supply Spectral™ to those licensees.
