Strong 1.53 μm to NIR-VIS-UV upconversion in Er-doped fluoride glass for high-efficiency solar cells
Spotlight summary: This manuscript describes measurements of the absolute efficiency of 1.5 μm to near-IR upconversion in Er3+ doped fluoride glasses, with possible application to enhancing silicon solar cell efficiency. The experimental data collected here should be useful for spectroscopists who wonder about the actual performances of their materials.
