  Ti foil for use in dye‐sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) is treated in a HNO 3 ‐HF solution. With the exception of cleaning, no additional pre‐ or post‐treatment is performed. This surface‐treatment method simultaneously improves electrical and optical behavior, resulting in a highly increased performance in terms of all figures of merit: V oc, J sc, FF, and power conversion efficiency. Proceedings of SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering, vol. , Publ by Int Soc for Optical Engineering, pp. , Optical Materials Technology for Energy Efficiency and Solar Energy Conversion XI: Selective Materials, Concentrators and Reflectors, Transparent Insulation and Superwindows, Toulouse, Fr, France, 5/19/ Alternative methods of solar energy are discussed in Part V. In Chapter 20 we introduce different concepts related to solar thermal energy. In Chap which is the last chapter of the regular text, we discuss solar fuels, which allow to store solar energy on the long term in the form of chemical energy. The book is concluded with an. An integrating sphere high-temperature spectrometer for measuring diffuse- and hemispherical-directional reflectance and transmittance, is developed for operation with specimen temperatures up to C, and over a micron wavelength range. In this configuration, chopped white light from a high pressure xenon arc-lamp is alternately reflected from the sphere wall, and reflected from, or.

SPIE International Symposium on Optical Materials Technology for Energy Efficiency and Solar Energy Conversion XIII, April , Freiburg, Germany, . The optical efficiency estimates the fraction of incident energy on the aperture that reaches the solar cell considering all the possible losses. The light rays incident on the aperture of the CPV unit will enter the optical element with a surface reflection component at the air–glass interface; further they are refracted within the optical.

Abstract: Ever since serious scientific thinking went into improving the efficiency of photovoltaic energy conversion more than 50 years.

If a low-cost technology can be devised for widespread applications, daylighting has the potential to reduce U.S. energy use by – quads ( x 10 15 BTUs). LBNL researchers are working to develop new materials and systems for daylighting buildings in collaboration with industry.   Mohsen Ameri, Mashhood Ghaffarkani, Reza Taheri Ghahrizjani, Nasser Safari, Ezeddin Mohajerani, Phenomenological morphology design of hybrid organic-inorganic perovskite solar cell for high efficiency and less hysteresis, Solar Energy Materials and Solar Cells, /, , (), (). Vertically aligned zinc oxide (ZnO) nanorod arrays coated with gold nanoparticles have been used in Schottky barrier solar cells. The nanoparticles enhance the optical absorption in the range of visible light due to the surface plasmon resonance. In charge separations, photoexcited electrons are transferred from gold nanoparticles to the ZnO conduction band while electrons from donor (I−) in.   Fourteen new results are reported in the present version of these Tables. The first new result in Table I is an outright record for solar conversion by any single‐junction photovoltaic device. An efficiency of % has been measured at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) for a 1 cm 2 thin‐film GaAs device fabricated by Alta Devices, Inc.
