Photon battery

Photon battery

This has been mentioned in a few different threads
as a hypothetical situation.

Various ideas of how this would be done
Fiber optic cables, or whatnot...

I am thinking of a more solid state device
That receives light and then traps it.
Using a transparent substance like optical plexiglass,
Cubic zirconium, or more ideally plates of Diamonds.

Diamond, for example, can be staged to have a refractive angle
Of 20-degrees in air.
9 of these plates would form a ‘mirror-trap’.
Light entering through the 9-layer interface would be turned around
180-degrees, and pass back through
And this would happen again on the way back up.
No light can escape, and the material would increase in energy.
(Most likely heat?)
As photon density increased, diffusion would force some photons to emit
perpendicular to the interface, thus defining a maximum light storage density
of the material, and corresponding diffusion rate vs light input.

Giving us the capacity of our Photon Battery
Any thoughts?

Raman scattering will quickly ruin all the fun

On average Raman Scattering will cancel out (it’s only 1/10000000 btw)
In air the freq may raise, in diamond it may lower.
That shouldn’t affect the angle of refraction

I think for this to work, it has to simultaneously act as a
Frequency Filter.
So only certain wavelengths will pass through it.
Because of the thickness of the refractive layers.
And any gaps we have to put between them

Since the energy of the light depends on its frequency,
The thickness of the material should be designed for the more
Energetic of the solar spectrum, or the particular laser we are using.
When the photon density reaches the maximum state of the battery
It should emits light (glow) and we will know it is fully charged.

This is defined by the probability wave function of the improbable state
in which a photon is diffracted in an angle other than the angle of diffraction
of the material interface. And at which point, the improbable photonic density
approaches the range of human vision. (or other standardized means of detection)
