Nat Nanotechnol. Jun;10(6) doi: /nnano Addendum : A nanophotonic solar thermophotovoltaic device. Lenert A, Bierman DM, Nam. To this end, a team of MIT research scientists have demonstrated a nanophotonic solar thermophotovoltaic (STPV) device that can help more. Here, we report on a full solar thermophotovoltaic device, which, thanks to the nanophotonic properties of the absorber-emitter surface, reaches.

This approach will ultimately allow researchers to design STPV systems capable of exceeding recently demonstrated efficiency values. However, efficient collection of sunlight in the absorber and spectral control in the emitter are particularly challenging at high operating temperatures. Principles of statistical radiophysics.
