Thousands of years ago, in ancient Egypt, a very special shade of blue was created. The Egyptians had used it in their depictions of God’s and royalty because of its radiance and beauty. Scientists today have found another use for it. This ancient blue’s new purpose now is to boost energy efficiency and generate clean renewable power. Cuprorivaite, also known as Egyptian Blue, is a man-made pigment made up of calcium, strontium, and barium copper silicate. When it absorbs visible light, it then emits light in the near-infrared range. A study was conducted by a team of researchers at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) where they measured the temperature of surfaces coated in Egyptian Blue (and related compounds) while they were exposed to sunlight. They discovered that the fluorescent blues can emit nearly 100% as many photons as they absorb. The energy efficiency of the emission process is up to 70% (the infrared photons carry less energy than visible photons)........ #ancientegypt Read the full article on our website. Link in Bio.
