Spin-mediated spectral conversion for efficient photovoltaics

Project description

Optimising solar spectral conversion

Spectral conversion can be beneficial for photovoltaic solar cells since it can increase efficiency and improve performance. A solution is to broaden the part of the incident solar spectrum that solar cells can absorb efficiently. The process of spectral conversion achieves this strategy by upconverting and downconverting the light wavelengths that are otherwise lost to transmission and heat. With this in mind, the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) project SpinSC will investigate the complex quantum dynamics involved in the process. The overall aim is to determine the conditions for spectral conversion to occur efficiently in molecular materials. The findings will be useful for the fabrication of spectral converters to enhance photovoltaic performance.
