PV cell efficiency is limited partly due to the spectral mismatch between the solar spectrum and the PV absorption properties. PV conversion efficiency is enhanced by external modulation of the incident irradiance, by means of photon downshifting (DS) and upconversion (UC). A ray-trace modelling tool is presented to simulate the luminescent DS and UC processes and thereby optimise the doping concentrations and geometric dimensions of the DS and UC layers.
