Nomination text:
The authors of this work developed 1 mm thick organic solar cells which are transparent to visible light by optimizing them to absorb mostly near-infrared wavelengths. Such solar cells could be used on windows of vehicles and buildings, thus making power-generating windows while keeping them transparent. This paper was highlighted in the special edition (50th anniversary) of Applied Physics Letters as one of the most notable APL publications in recent years.
