Photovoltaics (PV) - Conversion of solar energy into electricity Silicon as the most famous semiconductor for solar cell development* Si doped n Si doped p +²+² - - Electron-hole pairs creation *R. Singh; Journal of Nanophotonics, 3 (2009)

4
I) Silicon limitations for solar spectrum conversion Short wavelenghts BC BV Si Gap =1,12eV E - Energy loss due to carrier thermalization - Absorption of photons h >1,12 eV Energy lost

5
CB VB 1,12eV E - Silicon transparent for h <1,12 eV. Low efficiency for Silicon solar cells (a-Si 9%,c-Si 25%*) Silicon limitations for solar spectrum conversion Long wavelenghts *M.Green, Progress in Photovoltaics : Research and Applications 17, 320 (2009)

6
Stacking of semiconductors with different bandgaps SC 2SC 1SC 3 Decreasing bandgap Semicond. 1 Semicond. 2 Semicond. 3 Solution I: multi junction solar cells The larger bandgap at the surface of the device BUT: expensive and difficult to produce Aerospace Applications High efficiency (World record 40% * ) *M.Green, Progress in Photovoltaics : Research and Applications 17, 320 (2009)

Quantum cutting with rare-earth doped fluorides: ►Why Yb? E~10000 cm -1 ~1,2eV ~ Si Gap Yb 3+ Pr 3+ Yb 3+ Donor Acceptor Pr 3+ /Yb 3+ system E( 3 P 0 – 1 G 4 )~E( 2 F 5/2 – 2 F 7/2 ) E( 1 G 4 – 3 H 4 )~E( 2 F 5/2 – 2 F 7/2 ) Acceptor E ►Why Pr ? Resonant Energy Transfer 1 2

10
Host matrix: Fluorides - Low phonon energy High fluorescence quantum yield - Large transparency range Differences: RE 3+ doping Short distance between ions Very efficient energy transfer KY 3 F 10 Uniform distribution of dopants CaF 2 Formation of complexes (clusters)

11

12
3 P 0 fluorescence decay in CaF 2 and KY 3 F 10 Decrease of ( 3 P 0 ) with Yb concentration for both hosts Experimental Results Energy transfer rate : Energy transfer efficiency :

13
Experimental Results 97% eficiency with 4% Yb in CaF 2 96% eficiency with 20% Yb in KY 3 F 10 Transfer in CaF 2 more efficient than transfer in KY 3 F 10 Efficiency (%)

14
Modeling I: Classical model 3 energy transfer - Possible interaction between all Pr and Yb ions - Uniform ion distribution
