N2 - InAs thermophotovoltaic (TPV) cells with external quantum efficiency at the peak wavelengths reaching 71% at low temperature and 55% at room temperature are reported, which are the highest values to date for InAs. The TPV exhibited 10% power conversion efficiency at 100 K cell temperature. The dark and light current-voltage characteristics were measured at different cell temperatures (100–340 K) in response to heat sources in the range 500–800 °C. The resulting dependences of the output voltage and current as well as the spectral response of the InAs TPV have been extensively characterized for waste heat recovery applications. The performance of these cells is strongly determined by the dark current which increases rapidly with increasing cell temperature originating from bandgap narrowing, which resulted in a reduction of open circuit voltage and output power.
