Nat Nanotechnol. Jun;10(6) doi: /nnano Addendum : A nanophotonic solar thermophotovoltaic device. Lenert A, Bierman DM, Nam. To this end, a team of MIT research scientists have demonstrated a nanophotonic solar thermophotovoltaic (STPV) device that can help more. Here, we report on a full solar thermophotovoltaic device, which, thanks to the nanophotonic properties of the absorber-emitter surface, reaches.
