Thin form-factor planar sunlight concentrators fabricated using low-cost materials in conjunction with high-efficiency solar cells may prove economically competitive with silicon photovoltaics. A periodic structure with planar interfaces employing an array of microlenses and coupling structures is amenable to high-volume imprint manufacturing and hence a drastic cost reduction. A numerical study of periodic prismatic void structures aligned with microlenses to efficiently couple incoming light into a constant cross-section channel waveguide is reported. Three different prism-like cut-out structures: a bare prism, a planar connected prism, and a pointed prism are proposed. Numerical results show that the proposed pointed prism design offers a high-efficiency coupling with one-sided output (90.8% and 85.4% peak efficiency at concentration ratios of and , respectively).
