Description

With rising global temperatures from carbon emissions becoming a greater concern in modern times, utilizing renewable energy is becoming increasingly important. One method of harvesting solar energy more efficiently is to use luminescent solar concentrators (LSC) in various applications, such as solar power collecting windows and electro-photo catalysis. Toward these ends we have herein probed methods of increasing LSC efficiency through improvements in quantum dot (QD) synthesis, increasing QD concentration, and decreasing compounding losses due to scattering.
