Abstract

This paper evaluates the enhancement of the up-conversion phenomena by combining rare-earth doped phosphors with PbS quantum dots (QDs). We present results on the characterization of two different ways of adhering the up-converter with this fluorescent material to bifacial solar cells: by dissolving the powder in a spin-on oxide and by dissolving it in a silicone gel. The improvement in photocurrent detected for both the oxide and silicone alternatives when including the QDs is 60% better than without them. It is shown that the absorption and emission characteristics of the PbS QDs embedded in oxide and silicone can be tuned into to the desired spectral region. Keywords: quantum dots, up-converter, solar cell
