A method was proposed to construct a luminescent solar concentrator (LSC) by using a Pyranine dye. it's organic dye , fluorine and sensitive to light. The efficiency of silicon solar cell was measured before and after using the (LSC). Significant improvement was noticed in the solar cell efficiency (η) Where the increase was of efficiency from (0.619) to (2.192). and also, the (absorption & fluorescence), stokes shift (Δη), radiated lifetime (τfm) , fluorescence lifetime (τf) and quantum efficiency (Qfm) was calculated.


Conversion efficiency Solar cell, Dye concentrator, Organic Dyes.
