All aspects of the use of optics in the energy field are considered by this group. The group encompasses the conversion of light energy into other forms of energy including solar conversion via photovoltaic's and photo-thermal processes. Research on organic and inorganic photovoltaic devices, as well as design of optical systems to direct light into these devices, falls within this group. Photovoltaic materials, structures, performance and economics are considered. Devices and structures with improved efficiency, and/or involving novel use of light for illumination are important aspects of this group’s work. Additional aspects of illumination covered include the modeling and design of lighting systems as well as perceptional consideration.
Submit a paper to the OSA Light, Energy and the Environment Congress! Abstract and summary submissions are due by 7 July 2015.
Read the blog and listen to the presentations from the OSA Incubator on the Fundamental Limits of Optical Energy Conversion, which was organized by the Optics for Energy Technical Group.
