Efficient thin-film luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs) were fabricated using tetracene-doped anthracene cocrystals as novel fluorescent systems dispersed in a poly(methyl methacrylate) matrix. The LSC device efficiency ηLSC was found to reach 2.50%, with an optical efficiency ηopt in excess of 23% and a concentration factor C of 0.83%.

Abstract

Efficient thin-film luminescent solar concentrators (LSCs) were fabricated using tetracene-doped anthracene cocrystals as novel fluorescent systems dispersed in a poly(methyl methacrylate) matrix. The LSC device efficiency ηLSC was found to reach 2.50%, with an optical efficiency ηopt in excess of 23% and a concentration factor C of 0.83%.
