  1. 1. Optical Design for Stationary Solar Concentrators

    University dissertation from Faculty of Engineering, LTH at Lund University

    Author : Johan Nilsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2007]
    Keywords : parabolic reflectors; photovoltaic cells; optical efficiency; Solar concentrators; photovoltaic-thermal systems; non-imaging optics; optical properties; building integrated photovoltaics; non uniform irradiance distribution; structured reflectors; solar cell modelling; ray tracing; TEKNIKVETENSKAP; TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : Solar electricity is one of the most promising technologies for our future electricity supply. By using concentrators, it is possible to reduce the cost of generating photovoltaic electricity. This thesis discusses how to design stationary low concentrating systems for photovoltaic or PV/Thermal applications. READ MORE

  2. 2. Photoelectrochemical studies of dye-sensitized solar cells using organic dyes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Tannia Marinado; KTH.; [2009]
    Keywords : Natural Sciences Chemical Sciences Physical Chemistry; Naturvetenskap Kemi Fysikalisk kemi; additive; charge recombination; coadsorbent; conduction band shift; dye-sensitized; electron lifetime; electron-transfer; organic dye; photoelectrochemical; photovoltaic; sensitizer; semiconductor; solar cell; solar cell efficiency; titanium dioxide; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Physical chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : The dye-sensitized solar cell (DSC) is a promising efficient low-cost molecular photovoltaic device. One of the key components in DSCs is the dye, as it is responsible for the capture of sunlight.State-of-the-art DSC devices, based on ruthenium dyes, show record efficiencies of 10-12 %. READ MORE
