More than 30% of the incident radiation from the sun is invisible infrared light, or “heat”, which cannot be absorbed by solar cells designed to convert light into electricity. Converting this infrared radiation efficiently into visible light can significantly increase the efficiency of photovoltaic conversion of sunlight into electricity, and open up avenues for using other waste-heat sources to generate electricity.
