Abstract

The features of fluorescent glass solar collectors are discussed. Combination of Nd3+ and Yb3+ in high refractive index glasses is suggested as concentration material. Energy absorbed by Nd3+ is transferred with high efficiency to Yb3+ emitting at 970 nm. The self-absorption of Nd3+ is eliminated and long-wavelength emission at 1.06 μm decreased as a result of energy transfer.
