2022-03-24 Thermophotovoltaic Battery R & D @T.U. Madrid

This sounds promising. I’m puzzled by what is used for the photovoltaics and how it can handle such high temperatures – 1000 deg C. The glowing ferrosilicon generates a lot of infrared so in order to have 40% efficiency the photovoltaics must convert a lot of the IR to electricity. I know a bit
