Connect Program Partners | ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science

Exciton Science is proud to be associated with the leading Australian industry organisations that have committed to becoming Connect Program Partners.

This program is designed to allow us to better engage with our many industry and government connections in a meaningful and collaborative way.

It is hoped that this program will assist in forming new collaborative projects, provide recruitment opportunities and lead to new research discoveries in the field of exciton science, renewable energy and energy efficiency technologies.

ClearVue PV

ClearVue PV

ClearVue PV has been working for years perfecting a technology that utilises an age-old building material, one that protects us from and connects us to our environment, clear glass!

ClearVue PV’s patented technology allows visible light to pass through a pane of glass, while the invisible wavelengths of light are deflected to the edges of the glass where they are converted into electricity.

ClearVue PV technology can transform a glass building into a massive solar panel, generating power where it’s needed, reducing power transmission requirements across large distances. The technology is cost effective, environmentally friendly, and provides a sustainable and innovative new power generation capacity.

ClearVue PV has the potential to add efficiency to automobiles, public transport, agriculture and mobile electronic devices.

Victor Rosenberg

Victor is a serial entrepreneur who is globally recognised for his contributions to the glass industry. Victor started out life qualifying as a Pharmacist before starting and exiting a pharmaceutical manufacturing business.

He has extensive business experience in senior management and sales related positions gained over the last 40 years. For over 25 of these years he has owned and operated businesses he started including the pharmaceutical manufacturing business as well as in toiletries and food manufacturing where he won an International Innovation Award in Germany for developments in food processing technologies. He has also consulted to a number of private and public companies in the areas of pharmaceuticals, biotechnology and health foods.

In his work with ClearVue, Victor has recently spearheaded new and novel directions into which the ClearVue technology and product range is being diversified. In particular, through ClearVue’s ongoing collaboration with world-leading architects, designers and façade engineers (such as Arup Group), a range of self-powered, autonomous smart façade products have now been developed for commercialisation.

These include multifunctional window units and façade components such as windows featuring internal and external LED illumination, USB charging points, dynamic transparency-control (using PDLC, electrochromics or electrophoretics) and autonomous self-powered venetian and roller blind integration. All such window or façade features are controlled remotely over the internet.

These new developments have placed ClearVue at the vanguard of the worlds most advanced facade development and design and put ClearVue into a position of world leadership in self-powered smart window and glazing technologies.
