Paper Abstract

A number of methods to reduce the cost of solar power generation have been developed over the last few decades. Recently, research and development in the area of Luminescent Solar Concentrators (LSCs) have shown that these devices are capable of significantly reducing the price of solar energy. We propose using near infra-red (NIR) quantum dots (QDs) as luminescent media in the LSC. Our results demonstrate that LSCs designed with NIR QDs can generate over twice the energy as the ones using their visible counterparts.
