Abstract
The quantum dot solar concentrator optical efficiency is undermined by the parameters of re-absorption, scattering, and escape cone losses. These losses can be address through enhancing quantum dot (QDs) absorption and emission. This have been achieved through plasmonic coupling between QDs and gold nanoparticles (Au NPs). The plasmonic composite of various concertation of QDs and Au NPs were studied. The spacing between QDs and Au NPs is controlled through concentration distribution of both QD and Au NPs in the plasmonic composite, and it showed a significant increase in absorption and which is more pronounced for higher spectral overlap of QDs and surface plasmon resonance (SPR) frequency. The optimum plasmonic coupling showed a 17 % increase in the fluorescence emission for QDs in plasmonic composite. The results have shown significant enhancement in absorption, fluorescence emission for the p-QDSC.
