Electronic up-conversion: a combination of the advantages of impurity photovoltaics and (optical) up-conversion

Harder, Nils-Peter; MacDonald, Daniel


In this paper we discuss 'electronically coupled up-conversion' (ECUC) a new concept for improving solar cell efficiency, which is closely related to impurity photovoltaics (IPV) and (optically coupled) up-conversion (OCUC). The main advantages of ECUC over IPV are the same as those of OCUC over IPV: The solar cell is separated from the up-conversion process and is therefore only minimally influenced by the up-conversion. Furthermore, ECUC allows in the same way as OCUC a simple realization of...[Show more]
