Title: WAVELENGTH CONVERSION LAYER ON A GLASS PLATE TO ENHANCE SOLAR HARVESTING EFFICIENCY
Abstract:
Described herein are wavelength converting devices comprising a glass plate and a wavelength conversion layer over a glass plate that can be applied to solar cells, solar panels, or photovoltaic devices to enhance solar harvesting efficiency of those devices. The wavelength conversion layer of the wavelength converting device comprises a polymer matrix and one, or multiple, luminescent dyes that convert photons of a particular wavelength to a more desirable wavelength.
