CdSe/CdS core/shell in polyacrylamide polymer matrix for quantumdots luminescent solar concentrator


Luminescent solar concentrator (LSC) is used to enhance photoresponsivity of solar cell. The Quantum dots luminescent solar concentrator (QDLSC) consists of CdSe/CdS core/shell nanoparticles embedded a polyacrylamide polymer matrix positioned on the top surface of the silicon solar cell. This procedure improves the conversion efficiency of the bare silicon solar cell. The conversion efficiency of the solar cell has increased from 7.3% to 10.3%. This improvement is referred to the widening of the response spectral region window of the Si. Solar cell.
