Abstract

Twenty percent of the energy of the solar spectrum is lost as transmission losses in silicon solar cells. Current optical upconverters can recycle some of these NIR photons only at certain wavelength ranges. Photonic crystals and quantum dots are combined on page 568 by J. Marques-Hueso et al. in order to achieve NIR spectral concentration in the 1470–1580 nm range, which is suitable for absorption of erbium-doped upconverters.
