Efficiency enhancement of solar cells by luminescent up-conversion of sunlight

Trupke, Thorsten; Shalav, Avi; Wurfel, P; Green, Martin Andrew


Significant improvements in the efficiency of solar cells by combination with luminescent up- or down-converters have recently been predicted theoretically. Here, we extend the theoretical analysis of the limiting efficiency of the up-conversion (UC)-system to realistic Airmass spectra and analyse the spectral robustness of the UC-system. We also present initial experimental results from prototypes involving bifacial silicon solar cells with UC-phosphors attached to the rear surface, and...[Show more]
