High Conversion Efficiency Photovoltaic Cell Enhanced Lanthanide Complex Phosphor Film Coating
Maximal outputs of amorphous silicon (a-Si) photovoltaic cells (PVC) coated by the organically modified silicate (ORMOSIL) composite film containing a terbium bipyridine complex were increased to be 8 % higher than those of the uncoated a-Si PVC, owing to the effective optical modulation from UV to visible light by the lanthanide complex incorporated into the ORMOSIL matrix.
