(a) Illustration of traditional STPV and (b) nonreciprocal STPV. The absorber of traditional STPV has back radiation towards the sun. In nonreciprocal STPV, the back emission from the intermediate layer is suppressed, and more incoming energy is directed towards the cell. The nonreciprocal behavior of the intermediate layer can be made wavelength selective. Credit: Sina Jafari Ghalekohneh et al, Physical Review Applied (2022). DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevApplied.18.034083
