Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
For this Special Issue of the journal Applied Sciences, authors are invited to submit manuscripts covering research on luminescent solar concentrator photovoltaics (LSC PV), ranging from material science on various materials in LSC PV devices, such as luminophores, also called dyes, polymers, and photovoltaic materials, to device physics of various LSC PV configurations and their performance in relation to irradiance conditions, applications of LSC PV in modules, systems and buildings, indoor characterization, and outdoor monitoring. The aim of this Special Issue is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible such that they can be reproduced. If possible, a validation of simulated results should be included in a manuscript. Manuscripts containing design-driven research results are in particular welcome in this Special Issue. There is no restriction on the length of the papers.
