013-028-afanasev – Conventional single junction (e.g. silica, GaAs) solar cells absorb photons only from a limited range of spectra (i.e., above the band-gap photons), missing almost 60% of the energy that can potentially be obtained from the entire solar spectrum. Intermediate band (IB) solar cells, with Quantum Dots (QD) tuned to absorb photons from a wider range of wavelengths, offer a solution to this... Read More
