Rectenna Solar Cells
Rectenna Solar Cells discusses antenna-coupled diode solar cells, an emerging technology that has the potential to provide ultra-high efficiency, low-cost solar energy conversion. This book will provide an overview of solar rectennas, and provide thorough descriptions of the two main components: the diode, and the optical antenna. The editors discuss the science, design, modeling, and manufacturing of the antennas coupled with the diodes. The book will provide concepts to understanding the challenges, fabrication technologies, and materials required to develop rectenna structures. Written by experts in their specialized fields.
Covers higher level concepts and understanding the challenges, equipment, and skills required to develop rectenna structures Discusses concepts applicable for light to electron conversion circuitry Examines thermophotovoltaics, which deals specifically with IR frequencies
