Towards the commercialization of colloidal quantum dot solar cells: perspectives on device structures and manufacturing

Over the past decade, colloidal quantum dot solar cells (CQD-SCs) have been developed rapidly, with their performances reaching over 16% power conversion efficiency. Accompanied by the development in

Unlocking Higher Power Efficiencies in Luminescent Solar Concentrators through Anisotropic Luminophore Emission.

It is shown that luminescent concentrator conversion efficiency can be increased from the current record value of 7.1-9.6% by incorporating anisotropy, and that for high LSC performance, waveguide losses are as important as the luminophore quantum yield.
