Cadmium telluride solar cells: Record-breaking voltages

Here, the performance of CdTe solar cells — cheaper alternatives to silicon photovoltaics — is hampered by their low output voltages, which are normally well below the theoretical limit. Now, record

The promise and challenge of nanostructured solar cells.

Nanoscale objects provide opportunities to revolutionize the conversion of solar energy by enabling highly efficient and low-cost devices. Challenges associated with demonstrating high efficiency and

Solar electricity from concentrator photovoltaic systems

This thesis examines the prediction of concentrator photovoltaic system performance, and a model is presented where estimates are made using basic, fundamental material and atmospheric parameters,

Progress towards a CdS/CdTe solar cell implementing An Electron Reflector

An Electron Reflector (ER) structure in CdS/CdTe photovoltaic cells has potential to increase the cell's open circuit voltage. Progress towards implementing a Cd1-xMgxTe thin film as an electron

Perovskite solar cells based on small molecule hole transporting materials

This review gives an overview of the design and development of perovskite solar cells with a main focus on hole transporting materials (HTMs). The recent advances in metal halide perovskite solar

Historical Analysis of High‐Efficiency, Large‐Area Solar Cells: Toward Upscaling of Perovskite Solar Cells

It is believed that lessons learned from the historical analysis of various solar cells provide a fundamental diagnosis of relative and absolute development status of perovskite solar cells, and the unique perspective proposed here can pave the way toward the upscaling of each of these solar cells.

CdTe Solar Cells at the Threshold to 20% Efficiency

After a long period of stagnancy for record cell efficiency and several years of growth of the industry, CdTe solar cell efficiency has been rapidly increasing recently. First Solar (FSLR) fabricated

CdS quantum dots sensitized solar cells made with as- synthesized Cu2ZnSnS4 counter electrodes

Cu2ZnSnS4 (CZTS) thin films have been synthesized for assembly of QD solar cells. Such a cell exhibit a power conversion efficiency of ~0.27 %, which was significantly higher than Pt based one.

Design of photovoltaics for modules with 50% efficiency

We describe a spectrum splitting solar module design approach using ensembles of 2–20 subcells with bandgaps optimized for the AM1.5D spectrum. Device physics calculations and experimental data

Modeling of Photovoltaic Solar Cell Based on CuSbS₂ Absorber for the Enhancement of Performance

Research on photovoltaic solar cells has always been exciting due to its clean and green nature. However, the quest for alternative approaches to the design of highly efficient solar cells with

Recent work to image and control nanostructure in polymer-based solar cells is reviewed, and very recent progress is described using the unique properties of organic semiconductors to develop strategies that may allow the Shockley–Queisser limit to be broken in a simple photovoltaic cell.

Raising the one-sun conversion efficiency of III-V/Si solar cells to 32.8% for two junctions and 35.9% for three junctions

To improve the efficiency of photovoltaic devices while keeping the same spatial footprint, solar cells can be stacked on top of each other. Here, Essig et al. fabricate very efficient dual-junction

A twenty percent efficient photovoltaic concentrator module

A solar-to-electric efficiency greater than 200% has been achieved using a silicon-based photovoltaic concentrator module. The module uses 12 point-focus cells and has a total lens aperture area of

New world record efficiency for Cu(In,Ga)Se2 thin‐film solar cells beyond 20%

In this contribution, we present a new certified world record efficiency of 20.1 and 20.3% for Cu(In,Ga)Se2 thin‐film solar cells. We analyse the characteristics of solar cells on such a performance

Stability of Polymer Solar Cells

The developments in stability/degradation of OPVs in the last five years are reviewed, such as inverted device structures of the bulk heterojunction geometry device, which allows for more stable metal electrodes, the choice of more photostable active materials, the introduction of interfacial layers, and roll-to-roll fabrication.
