We investigate the connection between photonic local density of states and luminescent solar concentrator (LSC) performance in two manufacturable nanocavity LSC structures: a bilayer slab and a slab photonic crystal. Finite-difference time-domain electromagnetic simulations show that the waveguided luminescence photon flux can be enhanced up to 30% for the photonic crystal design over a conventional LSC operating in the ray optic limit, assuming the same number of excited lumophores. Further photonic engineering could realize an increase of up to one order of magnitude in the flux of waveguided luminescence. © 2013 AIP Publishing LLC. Show more
