An edge-illuminated multigap photovoltaic system should show an efficiency greater than that obtainable with only a single gap. The theoretical upper limit to the efficiency will occur as the number of different gaps goes to infinity. For this case a detailed balance limit analysis shows that at one sun the predicted efficiency is 64% increasing with intensity to 81% at ten thousand suns. The effects of stimulated emission are included in the calculations but are found to be negligible. Because…
