Photonics for innovative light management in photovoltaic modules (PhiliP)
As part of a multi-year research project, JOANNEUM RESEARCH - MATERIALS and NanoTecCenter Weiz are working on innovative approaches to increase the efficiency of photovoltaic modules.
Through this project, it will become possible to capture energy from sunlight that normally shines on inactive module surfaces. For this purpose, photonic structures will be developed that are incorporated into photovoltaic modules. These structures are designed to direct light onto active solar cell areas and, thus, improve the overall efficiency of the whole module.
