Abstract

We propose a luinescent solar concentrator (LSC) characterized by a strong enhancement of the concentration factor in which the area covered by photovoltaic cells is independent of the area over which sunlight is collected. We name this device cascade-LSC (c-LSC), as sunlight is both geometrically and spectrally concentrated by cascading absorption and emission into different LSCs. We demonstrate a prototype and measure the generated photocurrent. The results are in good agreement with those predicted by our numerical model based on Monte Carlo simulations. © 2014 AIP Publishing LLC.
