The mismatch between the AM1.5G spectrum and the photovoltaic (PV) cells absorption is one of the most limiting factors for PV cells performance. Typically, silicon-based PV devices present low performance in the UV spectral range and, thus, the UV component of solar radiation is wasted.
The research group of Prof. Rute A.S. Ferreira and Prof. Luís D. Carlos (CICECO – Aveiro Institute of Materials, University of Aveiro, Portugal) and of Prof. Paulo André (Instituto de Telecomunicações, University of Aveiro, Portugal) developed UV down shifting coatings for PV cells based on lanthanide-doped organic-inorganic hybrids to promote more efficient solar energy harvesting of silicon-based conventional PV cells.
