Paper Abstract

In the paper a new method is proposed for direct transformation of electronic energy of metastable species in inverse medium into energy of waveguide modes localized in a dielectric waveguide. Different waveguide configuration are examined. Numerical calculations show that transformation efficiency can be as high as 15-20 %, allows to achieve a high level of utilization of solar energy in those spectral regions {~ 1.3 .?m) where light losses are minimal (0.2 dB/km).
