Extending the Cutoff Wavelength of Thermophotovoltaic Devices via Band Structure Engineering

Licht, Abigail.

Abstract: Thermophotovoltaics (TPVs) convert infrared radiation, or heat, into electricity via a photovoltaic diode. While TPVs can in principle convert radiation from any heat source, in practice they have been limited to high temperature applications due to the relatively large bandgap diodes employed. Development of narrow bandgap TPV diodes is required to optimally convert longer wavelength ra... read more
