New Technology Harvests Sunlight, Releases Heat On-Demand - Clean Energy World

www.cleanenergyworld.net [cached]

The finding, by a research team headed by MIT professor Jeffrey Grossman, is described in a paper in the journal Advanced Energy Materials.
The key is an azobenzene molecule that can remain stable in either of two different configurations: charged and uncharged. When exposed to sunlight, the energy of the light kicks the molecules into their "charged" configuration, and they can stay that way for long periods. Then, when triggered by a very specific temperature or other stimulus, the molecules snap back to their original shape, giving off a burst of heat in the process. The "solar thermal fuel" material is highly transparent, which could make it useful for de-icing car windshields, says Grossman, the Morton and Claire Goulder and Family Professor in Environmental Systems and a professor of materials science and engineering. German auto company BMW, a sponsor of this research, is interested in that potential application, Grossman says. With such a window, energy would be stored in the polymer every time the car sits out in the sunlight. Then, "when you trigger it," using just a small amount of heat that could be provided by a heating wire or puff of heated air, "you get this blast of heat," Grossman says. "We did tests to show you could get enough heat to drop ice off a windshield. Accomplishing that, he explains, doesn't require that all the ice actually be melted, just that the ice closest to the glass melts enough to provide a layer of water that releases the rest of the ice to slide off by gravity or be pushed aside by the windshield wipers. The team is continuing to work on improving the film's properties, Grossman says, improving its transparency and temperature increase (from 10 degrees Celsius above the surrounding temperature - sufficient for the ice-melting application - to 20 degrees).
