Luminescent solar power: Quantum separation between free-energy and heat for cost-effective base-load solar energy generation (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Luminescent-solar-power spatially separates solar photon’s heat from free-energy for parallel harvesting of both. While the heat from a photoluminescent-absorber runs a turbine, its narrow emission matches the PV’s band-edge thus enabling cost-effective base-load solar energy generation.
