Thin semiconducting layers as active and passive emitters for thermophotonics and thermophotovoltaics

Catchpole, Kylie; Lin, K.L.; Green, Martin Andrew; Aberle, A.G.; Corkish, R P; Zhao, J; Wang, A


Thermophotovoltaics involves the photovoltaic conversion by a receiver cell of radiation from an emitter, which could be heated by various sources including sunlight. A prime difference from normal solar photovoltaics is that emitted energy unable to be used by the receiver can, in principle, be recycled allowing high conversion efficiency. Thermophotonics is a recent development of this concept where the emitter is "active", namely a heated diode, increasing the rate of energy transfer for a...[Show more]
