- ... Thermophotovoltaics (TPV) is concerned with the application of photovoltaic diodes to harvest electricity from thermal radiation. This is achieved through the use of appropriately designed thermal emitters which are typically heated to temperatures of more than 800°C. Merits of thermophotovoltaics include the prospect of delivering high power density compared to solar photovoltaics, fuel versatili ...
