Nanophotonic designs for luminescent solar concentrators
Nanostructured materials enable control over light propagation, absorption, and emission and enhance solar conversion efficiency when combined with luminescent solar concentrators.
Chemical compatibility between constituents of the active layer in bulk heterojunction solar cells affects its morphology, which in turn correlates with open-circuit voltage tunability.
