Enhancing the performance of solar cells via luminescent down-shifting of the incident spectrum: A review

Klampaftis, Efthymios; Ross, David; McIntosh, Keith; Richards, Bryce


The application of a luminescent down-shifting (LDS) layer has been proposed as a method for improving the poor spectral response (SR) of solar cells to short-wavelength light. The LDS layer absorbs photons, typically in the 300-500 nm range, and re-emits them at a longer wavelength where the photovoltaic (PV) device exhibits a significantly better response. This paper reviews the progress in this area over the last three decades, starting from early experiments that yielded promising results...[Show more]
