Perovskite Silicon Tandem Solar Cells

An HZB team has been able to improve the efficiency of perovskite silicon tandem solar cells, by achieving about a 25.5 percent increase. This is the highest value to be ever published till date. The team employed computational simulations to research light conversions in numerous device designs through different kinds of nanostructured surface.  More Details about the Enhancements Brought in For Perovskite Silicon Tandem Solar Cells The HZB team has

Enhanced Solar Energy Capturing Possible with New Way of Designing Materials

A very important discovery has been made by the researchers at the ARC Centre of Excellence in Exciton Science which may have remarkable significance for the material design of solar cells. This team which was led by Professor Timothy Schmidt, had been looking for ways to capture the energy of visible light which at present is only accessed 25% of the solar spectrum and the rest is wasted on account

Solar Cells now Flexible and Semi-transparent

Semi-transparent or transparent solar cells with great mechanical adaptability have pulled in much consideration as cutting edge shrewd sun based cells. They can be utilized as a part of different applications, for example, on the surfaces of windows, front show boards of PCs and PDAs, and human skin. Yet, issues stay concerning enhancing their energy transformation effectiveness, optical straightforwardness, adaptability, steadiness and versatility. Driven by Associate Professor T. Kato, the

Scientist Discovered Cost-effective and Efficient Tandem Solar-cells

Merger among the three well-known names in the market, the Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology (CSEM), the U.S. Branch of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL) demonstrates the high capability of silicon-based multi-nodal sun based cells. The researchers made a couple of sun oriented cells with significant precision and efficiency to turn daylight into electric energy under 1-sun illumination. As quoted
