The characterization of a wide range of luminescent thin films can be a long and tedious endeavor. With reactive combinatorial sputtering of multiple metal targets, it possible to fabricate thin films with a gradient in composition simply by not rotating the substrate. In this work, combinatorically sputtered thin films of Cr<sup>3+</sup> and...

Tm<sup>2+</sup>-doped halides exhibit excellent properties for use in Luminescence Solar Concentrator (LSC) applications. Such LSCs consist of a glass waveguide with small Copper-Indium- Selenide (CIS) solar cells attached to its edges. The waveguide contains a luminescent coating based on a Tm<sup>2+</sup>-doped halide, whose 4f125d1 absorption...

The parameters governing the performance of a luminescent solar concentrator (LSC) are determined for sputtered thin-films of NaI:Tm<sup>2+</sup>, CaBr<sub>2</sub>:Tm<sup>2+</sup>, and CaI<sub>2</sub>:Tm<sup>2+</sup>. These parameters are determined by using six gradient thin film material libraries, combinatorially sputtered from metallic...

The integration of luminescent nanoparticles into transparent polymer matrices opens the way to affordable, scalable and efficient luminescent solar concentrators. A key challenge in the fabrication is to prevent agglomeration of the nanoparticles as this will drastically reduce the performance due to scattering effects. The incompatibility of...

Building-integrated photovoltaics are drawing much attention to make the built environment self-sufficient in terms of electricity. Luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs) can provide this electricity generation when used as photovoltaic windows. Paramount to an efficient LSC are non-overlapping absorption and emission spectra, to avoid self...

PowerWindow, a built-in Luminescent Solar Concentrator (LSC), is composed of a window glass with thulium doped coating and a CIGS PV-cell strip attached to one glass edge. LSCs can absorb part of the incoming sunlight and re-direct it to the edges, where PV-cells can produce electricity. Light transport efficiency is then determined by several...

In the present research the building performance by the incorporation of a Smart Window integrated by LSC components into the building envelope is investigated in terms of daylight and energy consumption. From energy point of view, the main objective of the Smart Window was to provide ''usable'' daylight to the interior of the offices, allowing...

Solar photovoltaic outdoor lighting applications usually comprise flat plate PV modules mounted on top of a light pole. In our paper instead, it is thought of to design the light pole as a luminescent solar concentrator photovoltaic (LSC-PV) module with solar cell strips and hence reduce costs of silicon solar cells because concentration effects...

The worldwide struggle to renew the human energy supply to high environmental friendly standards has led to creative and innovative solutions for the supply of `green' energy. The financial benefits of conventional energy sources restrain the widespread use of renewable energy sources, like wind or solar energy. This competition requires...
