Toward >25% Efficient Monolithic Epitaxial GaAsP/Si Tandem Solar Cells
We report here on progress made in the development of >20% efficient monolithic epitaxial III-V/Si tandem solar cells. Following our prior demonstration of a GaAs0.75P0.25/Si tandem cell with
Effect of illumination on electrical characteristics of Au/Mn-complex/n-Si photodiode structures
We were produced a various Mn-doped complex and presented it in Au/Mn-complex/n-Si structure as an interfacial layer. For this aim, a metal-nicotinate/nicotinamide mixed ligand complex was
Influence of sulfurization time and Cu-ZnS-Sn stack order on the properties of thermally evaporated CZTS thin films
Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) thin films were synthesized in a two-step procedure. Sulfurization of stacked thin films SLG/ZnS/Sn/Cu (S1) and SLG/Cu/Sn/ZnS (S2) after sequential deposition of Cu, ZnS, and Sn


Cu2ZnSnS4 solar cells with over 10% power conversion efficiency enabled by heterojunction heat treatment
Sulfide kesterite Cu2ZnSnS4 provides an attractive low-cost, environmentally benign and stable photovoltaic material, yet the record power conversion efficiency for such solar cells has been stagnant
Direct Growth of III–V/Silicon Triple-Junction Solar Cells With 19.7% Efficiency
Monolithic multi-junction solar cells made on active silicon substrates are a promising pathway for low-cost high-efficiency devices. We present results of GaInP/GaAs/Si triple-junction solar cells,
High-efficiency inverted metamorphic 1.7/1.1 eV GaInAsP/GaInAs dual-junction solar cells
Photovoltaic conversion efficiencies of 32.6 ± 1.4% under the AM1.5 G173 global spectrum, and 35.5% ± 1.2% at 38-suns concentration under the direct spectrum, are demonstrated for a monolithic,
III–V-on-silicon solar cells reaching 33% photoconversion efficiency in two-terminal configuration
Silicon dominates the photovoltaic industry but the conversion efficiency of silicon single-junction solar cells is intrinsically constrained to 29.4%, and practically limited to around 27%. It is

High-Efficiency n-Type HP mc Silicon Solar Cells
Silicon solar cells featuring the highest conversion efficiencies are made from monocrystalline n-type silicon. The superior crystal quality of high-performance multicrystalline silicon (HP mc) in
Make perovskite solar cells stable
Five ways to improve the stability of perovskite solar cells are highlighted, believing that within two years, they could exceed efficiencies of 25%, while remaining stable for more than a year.
Planar-Structure Perovskite Solar Cells with Efficiency beyond 21.
This study finds that a moderate residual of PbI2 can deliver stable and high efficiency of solar cells without hysteresis, while too much residual Pbi2 will lead to serious hysteResis and poor transit stability.
