Thermophotovoltaic Generation of Electricity

The conference included various aspects of thermophotovoltaics, including systems, emitters, and cells. Key papers also dealt with TPV modules, recovery of high-temperature industrial waste heat, stand-alone gas furnaces, and military applications. TPV operates on the same physical principles as photovoltaics. However, it uses infrared radiation rather than light from the sun. TPV may be envisaged as a means of conservation of energy, as stand-alone item for some specific purpose (such as military applications), or in the domestic arena.
