We report the fabrication and characterization of photochromic dye sensitized solar cells that possess the ability to change color depending on external lighting conditions. This device can be used as a "smart" window shade that tints, collects the sun's energy, and blocks sunlight when the sun shines, and is completely transparent at night.
