Microthermophotovoltaic (micro-TPV) systems are generators currently being extensively developed to convert radiation heat energy from hydrocarbon fuel combustion into useful electricity by using low band-gap photovoltaic cell for microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). Micro-TPV systems consist of a heat source (microcombustor), a thermal emitter (microcombustor surfaces), a dielectric/optical filter, and photovoltaic cells. The architecture of a micro-TPV system and its components are currently the focus of research aiming to improve the overall system architecture, efficiency, and performance for practical implementation in the MEMS industry.
