Increased mc-Si module efficiency using fluorescent organic dyes: A ray-tracing study

McIntosh, Keith; Richards, Bryce


Ray tracing is used to determine how the inclusion of BASF's fluorescent organic dyes might benefit a multicrystalline silicon module. These dyes absorb shortwavelength photons and re-emit them at wavelengths that are longer and more favourable to the module. This down-shifting prevents many photons from being absorbed by the ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) encapsulant, the cells' antireflective coating, and the "dead layer" of the cells' emitter. We find that under one-sun AM1.5g illumination,...[Show more]
