© Scrivener Publishing LLC. In the last decade, innovations in photonic material design and large-area nanostructure fabrication technique have brought a new era of high- effi ciency solar cells. Photon management approach containing up-conversion (UC) and down-conversion (DC) has received considerable attention as an effi - cient way to improve the photoelectric conversion effi ciency of solar cells by breaking through the Shockley-Queisser effi ciency limits. In this chapter, we introduce the basic aspects of the photon management approach, typical experimental results, and discuss the suitability and existing problems of UC and DC nanomaterials for solar cells.
