PSU: Applying Tandem Design to Thin-Film PV Cells Could Achieve an Efficiency of 34.45%

published: 2020-10-16 18:30 | editor | category: News
Although thin-film PV cells have a long history of development and market presence, they are not as widely adopted as crystalline silicon PV cells. On one hand, thin-film cells have several significant advantages such as having a flexible substrate, being very light in weight, and reaching a high conversion efficiency. On the other hand, they are much more costly to manufacture than crystalline silicon cells. Consequently, low cost-performance ratio remains a major constraint to the market growth of the thin-film technology. ...  more
