The material's upconversion luminescence was investigated and it was found that near-infrared light could be effectively converted to green light centered at 563 nm, where a dye-sensitized solar cell normally possessed high spectral response. Using a thin disk of YAG:3.0Yb/0.5Er transparent ceramics attached to the rear of the dye-sensitized solar cell, the near-infrared response of the dye-sensitized solar cell was enhanced, due to the frequency upconversion. © 2010 Elsevier B.V.
