Abstract

The power efficiency of luminescence excited by solar radiation in luminescent solar collectors is calculated for a glass sheet doped with Cr3+. The achievable chemical potential for an optically thick absorber irradiated by diluted blackbody radiation as a function of Cr3+ concentration, sheet thickness, sunlight dilution, and luminescence quantum yield leads directly to overall conversion efficiency of solar power to luminescence power.
