5 Multiple exciton generation in semiconductor quantum dots and electronically coupled quantum dot arrays for application to thirdgeneration photovoltaic solar cells

Matthew C. Beard, Joey M. Luther and Arthur J. Nozik

5.1 Introduction

Power conversion efficiency (PCE) is one of the most important parameters that can directly affect the overall cost of a photovoltaic (PV) installation. Current solar cell technology based on a single light-absorbing layer is limited in its PCE of unconcentrated solar irradiance into electrical or chemical free energy to 33% as determined in ...
