Enhancing photovoltaic power by Fano-induced coherence Academic Article uri icon


  • We show that coherence induced by Fano interference can enhance power generated by a photovoltaic device as compared to the same system with no coherence. No additional external energy source is necessary to create such induced coherence. In the present model, coherence increases the flow of electrons through the load, which reduces radiative recombination and enhances cell power. 2011 American Physical Society.
