Presented at: 20th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition, Barcelona, Spain, 6-10 juni 2005.

We have made luminescent concentrator devices by gluing multi-crystalline silicon solar cells to polymer plates containing fluorescent dyes. The devices have been characterised by optical reflection- and transmission measurements and with external quantum efficiency measurements. We have applied different mirror configurations to the devices to improve the external quantum efficiency. The measurements have been modelled with a ray-tracing simulation. The simulation allows us to analyse loss mechanisms in the device.
